Why the Name Patricia?

My mother and I have a multitude of tragic stories to share as both of us were victims and Survivors of Domestic Violence and fought to survive during the course of our previous marriages. Although we endured both internal and external scars that once had us bound and broken, we were able to walk away victorious. Patricia is my mother's first name and I am dedicating this shelter in her honor.
