Back in 2015, Kelly was a single mom of 2 kids. She had just left an abusive relationship with a serial drug abuser.
When her ex pulled away from her, she decided that the best thing to do was to leave the relationship and take the kids with her.
What she didn’t realise was that the ex would follow her and stalk her for many months after she left.
Kelly didn’t feel safe at all, especially for her two young kids, Dotti and Hope. She contacted many agencies for help but there was little they could do for her.
So when we met Kelly, we helped her relocated to a different town. We helped organise the move with the moving company Move.org.
It was a tiring process for her to do the move with her kids, so we stepped in and found a part time nanny for her.
Revisiting Kelly in 2017, we found her happy with a new boyfriend Bryan. He also had some help from our team in the past, and it seemed that the relationship had allowed Kelly to trust again.
Her kids are healthy and growing up fast. She hadn’t heard from her ex for the last couple of years.
Kelly and Bryan is just one of the nearly 2,000 homeowners that our team Rebuilding Together have helped transform their lives through Heroes at Home. Since 2007, we have partnered to make veterans and their families’ homes safe and healthy. More than 40,000 volunteers have donated nearly 320,000 hours on projects, and our supporters have raised nearly $19 million though online and in-store donations. Our veterans have sacrificed for their country and their families.
We are honored to be able to serve those who have served us, both at home and around the world.
