Jessica was new to Colorado after fleeing her state to escape her violent husband, who had severely beaten and nearly killed her. She was not familiar with the resources available in the Colorado Springs region, so a family member referred her to TESSA. Jessica came to TESSA seeking help and information, which she quickly received through a confidential victim advocate.
