Hi! Have a couple of old computers (tower PCs) as well as keyboards and monitors, etc. I was wondering if they may could be useful in your ministry? I even have some childrens computer games (mostly educational). Just wondering if it’s anything you could use.
how can I report emotional and mental abuse if I am a man and my abuser is female? I feel so lost and no one believes me yet i have documented pics of my living conditions. She has turned the tables and made me the abuser via one of your own advocates with no evidence. But, i dont have pics and evidence. I dont know what to do. 😭😭😭😭
