It might not start off very exciting, but the ending is beautiful.
CORA makes this story possible!
Recently our Community Education Coordinator was speaking to a group of high school students about intimate partner abuse. She finished her training and left. Little did she know that, even as she was driving off of campus, a high school boy was calling his mother. He told her he’d just heard a speaker from CORA talk about abuse … and he thought a good family friend of theirs was experiencing it. He gave his mother CORA’s 24-hour hotline number, told her the tips he’d just learned about how to talk about abuse with a friend and asked her to reach out. The mother did reach out. Two days later, that family friend called the 24-hour hotline for help and began her journey to live abuse-free.
