“The wonderful people at Equinox gave me the tools to stand on my feet and get myself and my children out of an extremely dangerous and abusive situation … My children and I went from starving, scared, trapped, and basically homeless to a healthy, safe environment and home because of the Equinox team … I truly believe that Equinox saved my life and helped fix my broken spirit.”    -Equinox DV Client
