Solytha came to the Voice community centre with her 3-year-old son, Hou, looking for a job after the restaurant she worked at suddenly closed. Voice staff became immediately aware of a greater issue at hand due to bruises on her face – Solytha was also a victim of domestic violence. Solytha was running from her husband after he had beaten her again. Her rent was due, she had no savings, she had no employment, and she was scared that her husband would find her. Solytha and Hou took shelter at the Voice community centre in order to regain stability. Solytha said that staying here made her feel safe. Voice staff began to counsel Solytha and discuss the future with her. Voice also offered Solytha a temporary position as a house mother. After a few months, Voice helped her to find alternative employment and a safe living environment within the community. She asked Voice for assistance in making a formal complaint to the police about her husband and to file for a divorce. The staff accompanied her to the police, and are currently helping her through the upcoming legal proceedings. Voice continues to monitor Solytha and Hou’s family situation. Solytha is now self-sustainable as she is happily employed, renting her own home, and supporting herself and Hou.
