Testimonies from the MCVP's Shelters
“I feel that MCVP’s shelter has given me the opportunity to better my life and well-being. It’s surrounded me with people that continue to inspire me to live a life without abuse. The shelter is a secure facility and I live with people who have been through similar things as I have; it has allowed me to connect with other survivors. With the guidance of the staff it has given me the inspiration to continue to follow my goals. I am very grateful for the opportunity to receive the help that is available from MCVP.”
“I was so afraid and didn’t know what to expect, I cried all the way to the shelter. I immediately saw how peaceful the house was. I said “oh my god” this is a nice place! The advocate was great, he explained how the house works, and that it’s not “just a shelter”. My girls were very excited; I could see it in their faces. They were happy to be in a place that was more like a home and less like a typical shelter. This is the first time that I feel like I am on track in a long time and it’s only a matter of time before I am able to move and continue to move forward.”
“While I lived in the shelter, I attended their communication, boundaries, forgiveness and even dance therapy groups which were a vital part of my treatment plan. They also encouraged me while finding outside resources. After a period of time living there on my own, MCVP supported me in inviting my 12-year-old son to come live with me and also helped me get back into school. I am thrilled to report that I successfully did both; I even got my bachelor’s degree. We are now living on our own in an apartment and still engaged in the healing process from abuse. Tere really are no words to describe the immense sense of gratitude I feel for them. Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention is a vital part of our community and literally protected/saved our lives. I still stay in contact with them and refer anyone"
