Albany -- Thousands of people are victims of domestic violence every year. One in three women has been abused in some way, but some of them find help, and leave behind that life of abuse.
One place for victims to go in Albany is the Liberty House, a shelter for battered women and children. Now, the shelter is asking for your help to provide what may be their first Merry Christmas in a long time.
The Liberty House is celebrating 25 years of serving battered women and children. "We can celebrate the fact that there is a place for women to go and get the services they need," says Executive Director Silke Deeley.
But here at the shelter, they won't be able to celebrate Christmas quite the same as you and I. "Christmas is an especially difficult time. I think holidays for a lot of people is difficult even in the best of circumstances and in the worst of circumstances, it's a struggle and what do we say to children who don't get anything for Christmas?" says Deeley.
But they are hoping this Christmas will be different, with your help. The shelter has 36 families, who you can "adopt" for Christmas; buying necessities and gifts they would otherwise do without. "It's terrible, and the victims are mostly women and their children."
This Christmas, though, they won't be recipients of violence, but of generosity, from people like you.
If you would like to adopt a family or make a monetary donation, call the Liberty House at 229-439-7094. They will provide you with information and even pick the presents up from you.
