AARC received this heartfelt letter from a donor today. We very much appreciate the support during this time! ❤️

“Dear beautiful people who work for the Abused Adult Resource Center,

Right when the pandemic started to become very real for us in the United States, and the closures started happening; Well – when schools went online, we were not home and I read an article in a Montana newspaper regarding covid and isolation and it made me just stop. It was on how this isolating would make it very hard for people who were living in an abusive situation. I remember just shuddering, realizing that was something I had not thought of. They gave many reasons why, etc. So anyways – in my head I knew I wanted to give financially now when we received your letter. In between there and now, I have prayed for the victims of abuse and I had asked friends to pray. I have told God and my friends – we may not know their names or faces but God sure does. Thank you for all you do! Please use where needed most.”
