XX XXXXX XXX, Athens,OH 45701
I am able to relate much better than most people to the survivors that the organization helps. I have dedicated my life to helping victims of crimes, especially as it relates to domestic and child abuse. Having so many unique experiences in my life allows for a rare, comprehensive understanding of the issues that face both the women and children in the shelter. Determination to help rebuild the lives of those destroyed by tragedy compels me.  Being a part of the team at My Sister's Place enables me to contribute especially unique compassion, versatility and empathy in the process of rehabilitation.  It is my purpose to help those who have been wronged still become all that they can be: the shelter is not the end for these women, only the closure of a chapter in life. I am devoted to assisting in the transition to their next chapter.
