Sarah’s Story

    Sarah was born to a mother with severe mental illness and never met her father. The mother was not able to work and they did not have a place to call home. They were usually on the move and always looking for places to stay, often in unfinished structures, which left them both vulnerable. Sarah and her mother were both raped repeatedly over the course of Sarah’s childhood. Her mother, when suffering a mental break as she often experienced, would leave Sarah alone for long periods of time.

    Sarah was eventually taken in by an organization that cared for her for a number of years. Unfortunately, due to corruption and removal of donor support, the organization was shut down and Sarah found herself facing a very uncertain life again. The local probation officer was made aware of the situation and it was determined that Sarah could not safely be resettled with her mother. This was when PFP was asked to assist.

    In January 2018, Sarah joined the PFP family and will now find safety and security there. We will focus on her physical and emotional healing and will offer a safe place for her to grow.
