The protection of women and children is a priority and passion of mine. This is a safe community that promotes self-care and healthy lifestyles for our households. There may be situations where someone within this community or someone you know isn’t living in a safe environment. Please use these contact references or search for a different one, if preferred. No situation that is unsafe for us or for our children is tolerable, even temporarily. There are a number of resources and organizations that will support you and your family through any transition. But you have to reach out! We are here to help each other. If you know of a great organization that should be listed, please email me the contact information.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration “SAMHSA’s National Helpline is a free, confidential, 24/7, 365-day-a-year treatment referral and information service (in English and Spanish) for individuals and families facing mental and/or substance use disorders.”
