Someone leaving an abusive situation might use homeless services when they’ve left their own home to seek safety. They often have kids to care for too.

Domestic violence survivors deal with intense internal struggle (negative self talk, depression, insecurity, trust). Adding homelessness to that struggle means the job, the child care, the ability to recuperate or have that end of day #ritual or to check in with the kids or a friend or relax in a significant way to be ready for the next day…is ten thousand times harder if not impossible.

If you’re privileged to have a community of people who’ve helped you in the past for any reason, you’re #privileged. Not lucky. Privileged.

Your #privilege is a shareable, reusable, non expiring resource.
