Children and adults with disabilities are four times more likely to be abused then those without disabilities.
There were 23 families at BFL’s Freedom House shelter who moved into their own homes in 2017.
In one month, BFL’s Secret Garden provided 84 counseling sessions which allowed clients to explore a path to safety.
