Mary* is a 33 year old, married, mother of three children. She fled from another state to her home of Wayne County due to domestic violence from her spouse. Mary entered the shelter in July of 2011. Throughout her stay she was focused on self-sufficiency for herself and her children. She met consistently with her case manager at the shelter and diligently followed her case plan in seeking employment and housing.
Mary met with a counselor at EWH and was found to have minor symptoms of anxiety and depression due to the abuse, but was recovering quickly. Mary attended the Compass Support Group for survivors of trauma to assist her in her recovery from the abuse.
Mary met with the Victim Advocate to discuss her options in leaving the marriage. There were complications due to leaving the state. Mary received a free legal consultation from an attorney as part of a grant between EWH and Community Legal Aid. The Victim Advocate and the Attorney from Community Legal Aid coordinated services out of state to assist her in leaving the marriage. She was able to obtain a divorce and retain custody of the children. The Victim Advocate also assisted in safety planning and referring to supportive services.
Mary completed the Barriers Assessment for the Rapid Re-Housing of Ohio (RRHO) housing program and was eligible for long term rental assistance. She had difficulty obtaining employment; therefore, she decided to take this opportunity to return to school. Mary was able to locate safe housing for her and her children and was able to exit the shelter in November of 2011. She has continued meeting with the case manager on a regular basis through the RRHO program. She has obtained local employment and will be able to maintain her housing independently when RRHO assistance ends in September.
