We are grateful for the partnership of the Women's Fund of Essex County as we work together to promote solutions for survivors of sexual exploitation.

She walks up the steps, entering through the front door. A smile is there to greet her. The lights are on, the place is clean. None of the shades are drawn, so sunlight baths the room.

She has her own bed. Her comforter is warm and smells amazing from...

The Christmas season holds juxtaposition: the darkest days of the year, yet a time cheery with so many lights and anticipation. For Christians, the advent month reminds us to hope in Christ, coming to bring love and peace where we sorely need it. I think we like Christ...

Not many people know that I grew up on welfare. I guess the cat is out of the bag now. Money was something that always made all conversations tense in our home. There was never enough it seemed, and how it was spent was always under scrutiny.
