"My experience at OWS was one I will never forget. Although, my son and I were there for being abused, we soon were uplifted from all the support and encouragment we received. My case manager was there for me daily. She gave me all the tools I needed for childcare, employment, and housing. I am proud to say that by the time I left OWC, I had a job, housing, childcare, and most importantly the courage and strength to move on. Thank you OWC!"

"My daughter and I stayed at your Shelter over a year ago. We were treated so kindly and for the first time in a long time, we felt safe. I just wanted to send a little something to show our appreciation. My daughter and I are doing so well. We are happy and in a loving, stable home. We are safe and finally able to enjoy life free of abuse. Without the Onslow Women's Center, Inc., I would not be able to say that. Thank you with all my heart."

"I just want to say thank you to everyone at Onslow Women's Center. I went through a really bad time and they were there for me through it all. They helped me get housing, a job, and most importantly taught me that I am worthy and deserve to be treated right. I can now say that I am free and independent and I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for me."

"Even though I did not stay in the shelter, I still used Onslow Women's Center when I broke up with my abusive partner. They helped me get a protective order so that I could stay in my home with my children. They made sure me and my family were safe and even helped me get my kids school supplies. I will never forget how nice and caring they were and they really helped me through a scary time. Thank you!!"

"When I had nowhere to go, Onslow Women's Center was there for me. They really went above and beyond in helping me become stable, independent, and free from abuse. I have 4 kids and they taught me new ways to parent and they made sure my kids had everything they needed. They even went as far as getting a birthday cake and toys for one of my kids! It was a life changing experience to stay with Onslow Women's Center and I wouldn't be where I am today without them."
