A Safe Place to Heal and Move On

Common Ground was instrumental in renovating CTI’s Milly’s Place family shelter, providing a safe and supportive haven for numerous families including Jennifer and her three children. “My children and I were traumatized from domestic abuse. Milly’s Place and its staff transformed our lives,” says Jennifer, noting that staff quickly entered her family into trauma counseling and helped her be trained and certified in Mental Health. “Milly’s Place taught me how to understand abuse and take care of myself and my kids. The staff encouraged me to believe in myself and know I have a positive view of myself and my family’s future.”
