More than 300 attended the club’s 10th annual Fall into Fashion luncheon and charity event, held at the Q Center in St. Charles.
Dear Mutual Ground Supporter,
Scared. Lonely. Helpless. Hopeless. These are just some of the feelings that are experienced by victims of domestic or sexual violence. Feelings that need to be processed to begin healing. To begin the journey to wholeness and safety. At Mutual Ground we are here to provide help to anyone, at any time, as they navigate this journey. And it would not be possible without supporters like you.
At 2 o’clock in the morning, my neighbors heard a knock at their back door. A woman fled her west suburban home in the middle of a cold, snowy night. Clad only in her nightgown, she was running to save her life. She found my neighbors only by good fortune, because their back-porch light shone a way in the darkness, yet was hidden from the street. You see, her brutal husband got in his car to find her.
