Mary’s Story

Mary is a thirty five year old white female. She was born and raised in South Georgia, but moved to Macon for a job at a restaurant franchise when she was thirty. Soon after moving to Macon, Mary met John. John was an attractive and charismatic man who showered her with gifts and affection. John worked in construction and would often be out of town for months at a time. This schedule complimented Mary’s personality-she had always been independent and desiring of much personal space in her relationships. Soon, however, John’s personality changed. He began drinking when he was in town between jobs. He would call Mary names and on several occasions, hit her. After two years of abuse, John was fired for drinking on the job. At first, Mary tried to be supportive. She thought he needed a new job in order to escape his drinking buddies. However, no employer would consider John due to his legal issues with his prior company. John became increasingly violent and abusive towards Mary. Mary began hiding money in a secret savings account. However, John found the savings account, and held a gun to Mary’s head until she promised to drive to the bank and withdraw all of the money into cash. John left the home later that night to drink away the cash at a local bar. Mary realized that there was nothing else she could do to help John. She needed to help herself by leaving the relationship-and she needed to leave tonight, before he came home drunk.

Mary called her local domestic violence shelter crisis hotline. After a brief telephone interview, Mary was qualified for shelter. The advocate advised her to pack a bag with clothing and paperwork (birth certificate, social security card and driver’s license). Mary then walked to a neighbor’s house down the street while she waited on law enforcement transportation.

An hour later, Mary found herself in the domestic violence shelter. The shelter was small but warm. Staff was sympathetic to her situation and brought her socks when she realized that she had forgotten to bring some from home. They provided her with toiletries and warm bedding. A case manager spoke with her in order to obtain her basic information, and then Mary went to bed.

The next day, Mary woke up for breakfast and ate with the other residents. She met Shakira, a forty year old African American woman, Stacy, a twenty-two year old Caucasian mother of a two year old, Jeannette, a sixty-five year old Caucasian woman, Laura, a thirty five year old Latino woman, and Naomi, a bi-sexual immigrant. She learned that Shakira held a master’s degree in supply-chain management, but that her abuser forced her to surrender her paycheck to him every month. Stacy did not have family support and since she had no savings, she was staying at the shelter until she could save money and receive a job in her field. Stacy was a high-school dropout who had her first child, currently in the care of DFCS, soon after she aged out of the system herself. She had been the victim of severe physical abuse, and was in the Intensive Care Unit for a week before she was stable enough to come into shelter. Since she entered shelter straight from the hospital, she arrived at the shelter with no clothing or form of personal identity. Stacy told Mary that she was lucky she had her forms of identification in order to apply for government benefits and apply for jobs. Jeannette, the sixty-five year old Caucasian woman, had adult children in a different city but suffered from mental illness. She wandered the streets and had been abused by several different men who took advantage of her SSI money. Laura’s abuser was a roommate. Her roommate was emotionally abusive and would tell friends lies about Laura in order to distance Laura from her support group. When the roommate failed to pay rent, Laura tried to evict her. The roommate drug Laura across a room by her hair. Laura also had a long arrest record for petty theft and grand theft. Due to her arrest record, Laura was having difficulty securing employment. Naomi had come to the United States for a girlfriend and when she tried to end the relationship, the girlfriend withdrew her sponsorship of Naomi’s American visa. Being gay and an illegal immigrant, Naomi stayed in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship for eight years before a church friend referred her to the domestic violence shelter.

After breakfast, Mary thought about the different situations of the women she met. She realized how different each resident’s story was from her own. Although everyone’s story was unique, each story was tragic. Mary shared her thoughts with a case worker, who suggested that there is no perfect narrative of a domestic violence victim. The case worker told Mary what the different types of abuse are: Financial, Sexual, Physical, Verbal, Emotional, Academic and Psychological. From the examples the case worker provided, Mary was able to recognize the types of abuse she personally experienced. Mary realized that the one thing most of the residents had in common was financial status. The women did not have the family support or financial resources to leave the abusive relationship. Many of them stated that they stayed in the relationship longer than they would otherwise have stayed due to finances. Now that the woman had left, they were all facing difficulty in securing employment and housing. Some of the women had poor credit. Stacy was young and had not had the opportunity to build credit. She also had 40,000 dollars in medical bills from her hospital stay.

Mary attempted to remain employed at her restaurant management position. However, John appeared at her job sporadically over the span of a week. Mary normally stayed in the back of the restaurant because that is where her office was located, but one time a cashier had a question and John saw her in the front of the store. When John saw her, confirming Mary was still employed there, Mary decided she had to quit.

Deciding to quit her job was a huge decision for Mary, because she knew the shelter was only a temporary option and she needed to be making long-term plans. Mary spoke to her case manager about her decision to quit her job. The case manager suggested that Mary apply for a Temporary Protective Order (TPO). The case manager referred Mary to a Legal Advocate who was also employed at the domestic violence agency. The Legal Advocate assisted Mary in writing an Exparte Protective Order to present before a judge. The Exparte Order meant that John had to remain 150 yards away from Mary at all times. He was to have no direct or indirect contact with her. He was banned from Mary’s workplace. Violation of the order meant that John could be charged with aggravated stalking (a felony).

The Legal Advocate accompanied Mary through the legal process and helped Mary obtain a One Year Protective Order. The One Year Order allowed Mary to feel safe again and she was able to keep her job because she knew that if John showed up at work again she could call the police. She moved out of the shelter into a small apartment that the shelter assisted her with furnishing. Mary was proud of herself-she overcame many financial and emotional hurdles in order to gain independence from John.
