For abused women: it's not hopeless

Each is valuable and worthy in God's eyes.

Abuse and violence directed at women have become increasingly important topics in recent years. Many communities have centers that help women abused by their husbands or partners. For over 16 years Linda Osmundson has been a director of such a center in St. Petersburg, Florida—CASA. Its staff of 65 provides temporary shelter and transitional housing for 500 women and children each year.
