Rainbow Quest - help brighten our future

We are survivors of domestic violence. My daughter and I have struggled following his arrest 19 months ago. Since his release he has continued to stalk and intimidate us. He not only continues to abuse me and our daughter he is abusing the legal system as well. Due to our enormous circumstances we are on this journey with extremely limited support. I am on a quest to show my little girl that rainbows can be tangible, that the storm we weather has a brighter ending. We need secure long term housing for ourselves with beloved pets. We need a family lawyer with extensive abuse experience. We also need a children’s lawyer who can amplify this little girls voice. I’ve been advised the legal fees can be upwards of 40k. The retainers alone for each begin around 5k. We need expensive psychological evaluations to assist our case (3-5k) and access to private therapy as we are waiting for community resources. The current waitlist is 9 months for myself and 12 months for my child. I would love to return to school, upgrade and relaunch an independent career. I once worked as a nurse but the tuition to re-educate is still too far from my grasp.  I can do this, but I also recognize that I need help. Please consider donating to help lift our dreams and reach our goals for a better future. I know this campaign is just a fraction of the total cost but we are time sensitive in getting resources rolling. I understand personally the world climate as a result of the Covid pandemic. Any help is appreciated and will be applied wherever it can make the best impact. We pledge to give back and influence change for victims and survivors of abuse like us, because no one should feel isolated, afraid and most importantly unheard.

I look forward to sharing every milestone and goal we are able to reach.
