Susan has a fabulously positive attitude even with all the suffering she has experienced. Like so many of our rescued ladies, Susan suffered abuse and neglect as a child: her mother used drugs and her stepfather beat both Susan and her mom. Eventually, he murdered her mother, and, at the age of 15, she met and married a man who introduced her to drugs. She eventually left that situation and entered a relationship where she was both beaten and trafficked. Today, after being at the WellHouse for 3 months, Susan expresses that she is finally finding herself.  She describes The WellHouse as an amazing program where she is receiving the tools to allow her to grow and regain her life. She is not fearful of having to go back to another state to testify against her trafficker because she strongly believes that The WellHouse will support her and that this is her home!
