DETAILS

“I have no doubt that, with the Texas Advocacy Project’s help, my life was saved,” said Strickland.

Several years ago, Strickland was in a dangerously abusive marriage. But one phone call to Texas Advocacy Project changed everything.

“They have helped me get a divorce and move my children and myself to a safer place where I’ve been able to continue on with my life, get an education and get a better job,” she said.

The mother of five is no longer a client, but Strickland continues to volunteer with Texas Advocacy Project. Most recently, she has been helping out with the non-profit’s Handbags for Hope drive.
