When I called last Monday morning I felt scared for the safety of my family and powerless to do anything about it. A 45-minute phone call with [Helpline Coordinator] turned all of that around. She was empathetic and encouraging, which enabled me to take action… [She] also did some research, made some calls, and followed up with me via multiple emails, which I greatly appreciate. Thank you for the work you and your team do every day.
