Struggling to Survive

Abbie is a first-time mom struggling to survive. She confides in a nurse from Great Expectations: her boyfriend abuses her.

One night, not long after her son is born, Abbie calls her nurse in tears: her boyfriend hit her and has been arrested. Abbie’s nurse connects her with Advocate Safehouse, helps her find temporary housing, and accompanies her to court for the domestic violence hearing. With her nurse at her side, Abbie manages to leave her boyfriend and rent an apartment for herself and her son.
