After something like this happens to you, there’s just so many lies about yourself that you believe and through going to ABC House… some of those lies that I believed about myself were broken off, just like that. It was so awesome to have those lies broken off and begin to believe in myself again.
From a Parent:
ABC House…is support, it’s love. It’s everything in the darkest, ugliest time that you need. You can feel comfortable with them. They take those awkward feelings…and they replace it with their love, with their support and with the hope that we need to get through our hard times.
From a Partner:
Trying to coordinate the care for an abused child that needs to continue on as well as to get them justice takes a lot of people, a lot of coordination. That’s something we just cannot do in an ER by ourselves. There will be many more children who fall through the cracks without the ABC House.
