Tracy’s Story: The Courage to Live


Tracy was with an abusive husband for years and came close to death before becoming a Family Rescue client. Tracy’s husband had doused her with gasoline and set her on fire in front of their four children. She was severely burned, hospitalized, and upon release, homeless.

She searched for the nearest police station for help. An officer took her to Family Rescue’s Legal Advocacy Program where legal advocates secured a police escort for Tracy to pick up her belongings and move with her children to our shelter.

Family Rescue’s legal advocates accompanied Tracy to all court proceedings where Tracy courageously testified against her husband. He was charged with several felony counts, including attempted murder. Tracy and her children continue to receive counseling and support and they are beginning to heal.
