Janice's Story

Janice had been visiting her local Family Pathways Food Shelf regularly…but one week she came in trembling. She was frightened and needed more than food for her table. Her husband has threatened to burn their house down with her and their children in it.

“I had no idea what to do next,” Janice explained. “I had no family and no money.”

A volunteer immediately wrapped a blanket around Janice’s shoulders and a staff member held her hand as she shared her story. When Janice was ready, she left not only with her week of groceries but contact information for an advocate with Family Pathways Domestic Violence Advocacy and Shelter Services to help escape the domestic abuse she and her children were suffering.
