Elaine was using both drugs and alcohol by age 11. She was removed from her home because her mother was physically abusing her and was mentally ill. As an adult, Elaine too lost custody of her children. She could not break the multi-generational cycle of abuse alone. Elaine’s journey back began at Partners, where she played on the floor with her youngest son and learned to be a healthy and nurturing parent.
Partners is honored to receive a generous $2,500 grant from Larry H. Miller Charities to support the work of our Children's Advocacy Center. Child abuse affects the physical and mental health of the victim, as well as every member of the victim's family, and ultimately the entire community. This gift from LHM Charities helps us to provide services that enhance the health and quality of life for children in all our neighborhoods.
