Kerry and her family finally free from fear

Home wasn’t safe for Kerry and her two young children.

Ever since her husband lost his job, he’d been drinking and taking drugs to cope.

Kerry and her children, Jack and Bella were terrified. Once he even grabbed Kerry and threatened her with a knife.

Kerry and her children desperately wanted to leave, but felt trapped. They didn’t know how or where to go.

One day her husband was arrested for drink driving and sentenced to time in prison.

This was Kerry’s big chance.

Walking into that police station was so hard, but I had to do it for myself, and for my kids.”

The Police connected her with Laura, a domestic violence specialist from Mission Australia.

Laura made a promise to help Kerry, Jack and Bella. A promise she kept. After years of fear, they were finally safe.

Kerry knows they owe their safety and independence to generous people like you.

She’s thankful for all the help they’ve received, but worries for other families in a similar situation without any support.

We have Mission Australia to thank for helping families like mine feel safe again. Thank you for giving us the reassurance that there is always someone out there who will have our backs.”
