"I thought I had the perfect family until I learned that my husband was abusive to our two daughters. I was devastated and did not know what to do. I did not feel safe for my children in my own home and our financial stability was shaken. Shepherd's Village provided a safe haven for my family. The families at Shepherd's Village helped me and my children to get through this terrible experience. Though we are not completely healed, I thank God and the people at Shepherd's Village for their support through this."
"I thank everyone for caring and making me feel like I can go on with my life. The leaders make me feel important and help me make the right decisions."
"I was stunned and hurt when my husband told me he wanted a divorce. I did not have any money or many material possessions except my clothes and my daughter's toys. I did not have a job so I contacted Shepherd's Village and was fortunate enough to get a one bed room apartment. I didn't know how I was going to pay the rent. However God and the people at Shepherd's Village were good to me and I found temporary work that eventually evolved into full time employment. Shepherd's Village provided a place for me and my daughter until I could get on my feet. In addition to a home, the people at Shepherd's Village provided emotional and spiritual help so that I did not feel alone."
"Thanks to this ministry, this past year, which would have been the worst year, has been the best year of my life. I can lay my head on my pillow at night and feel secure. I know that my home is safe and secure. But most of all I know there are people praying for my children and me. I am so grateful for the opportunity to live here and spend my enery on healing and helping my children heal as we all grow closer to God and find His will for our lives."
"I needed to get out of an abusive home. I had a child in high school and didn't know what to do. Although I had heard of Shepherd's Village, I never thought I would some day be living there. I helped paint and clean to get the apartment ready. It really made me feel it was a special place for us. Shepherd's Village helped me during a critical time in my life. I have since moved on with my life and was able to obtain one of my goals of purchasing a condo. I also teach the Bible to the children of Shepherd's Village. It is my way of giving back something to this ministry."
"When you have been with a mate for a long time you almost feel incomplete if you don't have that spouse or that man in your life. Here at Shepherd's Village, we are fully satisfied with the emotional support we have in each other. It's like a family to me. I actually look forward to coming home at the end of the workday. It's neat to know you have somebody watching out for you."
