After being held hostage, choked, beaten, and severely battered by her abuser, Kristy feared for her life and knew she needed to do something to protect her children. Kristy found the counseling and support she needed through United Way programs and we continue to create historic policy change so that no family has to endure this type of pain and trauma. Kristy has now regained her freedom and her voice, which she wants to share as an advocate for survivors like her.

United, we fight for the victims of domestic violence.
