Evie’s Story »
Evie* is only 8 years old, but already she’s experienced horrific trauma. She’s seen her dad beat her mom. She’s heard her mom cry and beg for him to stop. Before she came to Shepherd’s Gate, all Evie had known was fear. She didn’t know what it meant to feel safe or have hope for the future.
But everything changed when Evie and her mom came to Shepherd’s Gate. She now has a safe place to sleep every night and healthy meals to eat. Evie also has her own outside therapist that comes to our campus to help her heal. She’s overcoming the pain and hurt and learning that life can change. Evie’s mom is also learning how to overcome her past and build a better, brighter future for both of them!
