WOMAN NEEDS HOUSING
April 28, 2011
In Madison County, Illinois a 44 year old woman with a mental health condition left an abusive relationship and does not have housing. She is not eligible for housing at the local domestic violence shelter because she does not have children and the battery she experienced was not recent enough.
She has the choice of staying on the street or staying with someone who will hurt her again.
Our government has the choice of funding housing or supporting domestic violence.
