Turning Point Helps Make it Right Again!
Sometimes things go so terribly wrong...
For children like Jake, home is the most dangerous place. Rather than a loving and nurturing environment, they see more than any child should. They see their dads hurt their moms. And they get hurt themselves. They endure physical, emotional, econmic and even sexual violence in the very home where kids should be the safest.
Janice didn't think it could go so wrong... When she started dating Mike, everything was good. But he started screaming hateful names at her, and it wasn't too long before he was throwing plates at her. He pushed her down the stairs for her birthday. And when he held a gun to her head and swore he would kill her if she tried to leave him, she knew he meant it.
Charise has a good job. She has worked at the same office management job for more than 3 years in hopes of moving into an upper management position. She and her children have been forced to flee to shelter because her husband has become increasingly violent, often slapping her and pulling her hair. He has raped her on several occassions, saying a wife is obligated to provide sex for her man. But the final straw was when he locked her in the bathroom, then disappeared with the children for 2 weeks. He has told her that she will never see the children again if she ever tries to leave him.
