TW: abuse, violence

"I would try to talk to him about the blow ups and he would tell me I was being dramatic and crazy. He would say he was sorry and it wouldn't happen again. My son asked me 'mommy, why does daddy hurt you?' That is when I knew I had to leave."

Gaslighting is an extremely effective form of emotional abuse that causes a victim to question their own feelings, instincts, and sanity. For Luisa, she spent years feeling guilty for "blowing things out of proportion." It took her own son validating her feelings as a wake up call to realize the behavior was abusive. Luisa utilized Safehome's therapy and legal assistance programs and was able to work through her difficult feelings and began to heal.

Today, Luisa has reconnected with her family that she was estranged from because of her relationship. She is currently taking night classes to follow her passion in culinary arts.

"My all-time favorite Arrowhead experience (or other stadium) is_______."

Arrowhead may be closed to tailgating in 2020, but Nebraska Furniture Mart's parking lot isn't! Pack up that SUV with your family and friends and all your tailgating gear. On November 22nd, let's show our Chiefs spirit by doing what KC does better than the Raiders – tailgating!! And playing football….right, 😉 @patrickmahomes , @travis_kelce , @clyde_edwards_helaire1

LETS GO, #ChiefsKingdom!!

The parking lot opens at 4:00 pm with a live DJ, Trivia Challenges, and more! The game will play on two 30-foot screens and lets Tailgate like its Arrowhead (BYOTailgate, BYOBBQ, BYOB) food and concession passes will also be available for purchases.

For more information and to reserve your parking pass to Tailgate Drive-In Family Night: Chiefs vs. Raiders visit https://safehome-ks.org/mec-events/tailgate/
