Amber:Independent and violence free

In 2015 Amber* relocated to Georgia from Texas to be with her boyfriend and the father of her child.  Shortly after she arrived, Amber’s boyfriend came home late one night and began beating her.  As soon as she could flee the violence and lock herself in the bedroom, Amber called 911, as she feared for her life. When the police arrived an arrest was not made, so Amber left to spend the night in a hotel.  However, lack of financial resources soon led her to leaving on the street, spending her days searching for support at the Atlanta Day Shelter.  It was there she was referred to PADV and found her way to our shelter.

While with PADV Amber obtained permanent housing and employment.  Shortly after moving with her daughter into their own PADV sponsored apartment, Amber was able to take over her own lease.  Thanks to PADV’s comprehensive services, Amber and her daughter are now safe, independent and violence free!!
