Women’s Aid group plans fundraiser walk

May 29, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

The doorbell at Women's Aid in Crisis rings at 10:45 p.m. It is a police officer accompanied by a woman and three children, who are all barefoot, with no coats, no personal items of any kind - just faces full of fear. While this family is being settled in to one of the five bedrooms at the shelter, the phone rings. On the other end of the line someone is sobbing, unable for the longest time to tell the advocate that she has just been severely beaten and raped. Sadly, this often constitutes a normal day at Women's Aid in Crisis.
