Sarah was so excited when her fiance wanted her to move from Milwaukee to Little Rock to be with him. A new place, wedding plans – it was going to be wonderful. With no family of her own near, she was especially excited to be close to his family. She had not had relatives close enough to share her life with for a long time.
But sometimes, home is not safe. Once Sarah was here, her fiance began behaving strangely. His temper flared and eventually becoming violent. Sarah tried to talk with her new family about it, but they wouldn’t listen. Finally, she realized she had to leave. Things were bad enough that she had to leave as soon as she got a chance.
She left everything behind.
When Sarah came to St. Francis House she had only the clothes on her back. Luckily, we were able to get her a bus ticket to Milwaukee as well as provide clothing and food for the journey.
