Dear Ms. Lauri, I woke up this morning not being able to feel my feet, I know it was because of the anxiety I went through yesterday. I prayed and made myself get up! I had an important task to complete! It consisted of me going to court to settle an eviction. I then began to feel the fear of seeing my abuser set in… I felt so ALONE, then I heard the words you said to me yesterday, “you have us now, you can talk to any one of us about anything, you are protected here. The officers will protect you in court and will not let your abuser get to you.” You may never know how that made me feel! I felt my butterflies began to come to a halt, yes, the flutters are stopping. I prayed for strength as well as courage. I thank you and Ashley, and the rest of the staff at Project Renewal for being here for me and my kids and allowing us to be here as I prepare for this new, peaceful, and exciting journey I am about to take! Thanks again for your huge heart!



Project Renewal, I am so blown away by the treatment my children and I have received from each individual here at Project Renewal. From the moment I walked through the door, we were embraced with love and care. We did not need a thing while we were here! We will forever be grateful for all the help we received. I am so thankful for everyone being helpful and extremely nice. I cannot wait to  volunteer and give back. I truly thank God for every one of you.



Dear Project Renewal, I want to say thank you for the many things you have helped me with. Thank you for the many gifts you have given me. I am most thankful for the roof over my head and the warm cooked food. I would rate this place five stars and I have had the best experience here. Everyone is warm and welcoming, and I have enjoyed my stay here and all the help I received.



I would like to thank each one of you for absolutely everything. I was a mess when I arrived but now, I am leaving a stronger person. I am forever grateful for the love and support shown to me and my kids. I hope that one day I can help women like me succeed.



I want to tell you ladies that I love you all! I want to say that you all saved my life! Literally! From your kind words, your compliments, keeping me balanced and grounded, and fed! I was broken when I entered this shelter, and you all gave me space, roof, and time to recover! You also gave me encouragement and motivation. Those are priceless gifts! I am forever grateful and from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you all. Project Renewal is a wonderful place and you truly save lives! I love you all. I will remember each smile through the rest of my journey.
