Alyssa’s Story

When Alyssa’s abusive boyfriend threatened her, ALWAYS was by her side. ALWAYS assisted Alyssa to obtain an order of protection preventing her ex-boyfriend from coming in contact with her. ALWAYS negotiated with Alyssa’s landlord who waived her lease allowing her to move to a safe home away from her abuser.
