Kameelah left a violent situation and came to Safe Horizon on her due date. She brought her healthy baby girl home from the hospital in a pink onesie.

Domestic violence is not limited to relationships between intimate partners. It happens at home, between family members, too. This can put the safety of young people in jeopardy and sometimes their safest option is to collect their things and leave. For many young people, domestic violence is the primary cause of homelessness. This is what happened to Kameelah. She was nine months pregnant when tension in her family reached a breaking point. She felt forced to make the decision to leave. On her due date, Kameelah walked through the doors of Streetwork Project. She worked with a caring staff member who found her a spot at a domestic violence shelter. Only a few days later, Kameelah carried her daughter home from the hospital in a soft pink onesie, to the safety of the shelter. There, she was able to physically and emotionally recover.
