How will I meet my family’s basic needs?How can I help my children?Will life be better if I stay or if I go? Who will help me get what I need to be safe?

Some women want their family to be intact and when some advocates are not for some of the programs for men it’s counter (to what victims need). You need those programs for men if these families ‘gonna to stay together. ‘Cuz some of these families, they want to stay together. They do. To say, “No, this man is trash and put him over there” to me does not work.
