Your donation to JFON Houston helps make self-sufficiency possible for survivors of domestic violence, like Fanta, who are often too sad and scared to report their abuse.
Fanta came to the United States thinking she was marrying Prince Charming. But, before long, soft touches quickly turned into heavy hands, controlling manners and violent tempers.
Having no access to money or her passport, Fanta felt helpless. Her U.S. citizen husband refused to complete her immigration papers. Last year, Fanta came to our office seeking help. She learned through her attorney that immigration help was available and that she didn’t need her husband in order for her to stay or work legally in the United States. While working on the application, we also secured a safe place for Fanta and her daughter to live.
Eventually her application got approved. Today, Fanta is happy be living in her own place and able to work and provide for her daughter.
