Jody's Story:

Jody called our hotline after midnight. On the run for several years, she had fled the southeast to put maximum distance between herself and the man who had successfully tracked her down three times before. Running, with her three growing children in tow had become her life. That night we placed her and her children in a motel and the next morning took them to the shelter where we knew they could be safe. But Jody and her children weren't so sure. They all were distrusting and afraid.
In the next few months we witnessed the transformation of a woman who had lost all hope, to someone who could laugh, relax, plan and dream. A person who out of despair had lost her faith, to someone who could again see God's love and concern. After a change of identity and relocation, Jody is again working in her profession, is active in her new church, and is watching her children grow and prosper without fear.
