Domestic Violence “Mary” was trapped in an abusive marriage. Her husband beat and choked her in front of her two young children, but like many women in similar situations, she feared her abuser would turn even more violent if she left. Despite limited financial resources, she finally gathered the courage to escape, with the help of two non-profit organizations, the YWCA and Legal Aid.
