• Abuser Arrested As Result of 911 Phone Call
Shelley Gordon, Shelter Manager at Help Now, Inc., in Kissimmee, FL, stated that a victim from the
Shelter was given a free emergency cell phone to use. On her way to the store, the victim noticed
she was being followed by her abuser. She was able to use the phone to call 911, and the police
quickly came to her rescue. Her attacker was then arrested for Violation of Injunction and taken to
Emergency Cell Phone Saved Her Life
Jacqueline Green, Director/Victim Advocate for E. Cleveland Domestic Violence Center in Ohio,
contributed this: “There was a victim who came in to get help, and we gave her one of our
emergency cell phones because her abuser had taken her phone (very common with abusers). She
was in fear of him, and she had to leave the house. The phone made her feel a little safer,” added
Green. “A few days later she was on her way to work, and he tried to run her off the road; she
used her emergency phone to tell the police where she was. They found her and apprehended him.
Because he had a prior Domestic Violence charge, he was sent away for several years.”
• Mary Hadlock of the Southern Maine Agency on Aging in Scarborough, ME, sent these comments in
a letter from senior Stanley Baron who felt much safer knowing he had emergency communication
when he was outside of his home. “In recent years, I have been concerned about how I would
obtain assistance away from home if I should be faced with an emergency. My daily communication
needs are best met by my land-line phone service, and adding a cell phone did not make economic
sense for a retiree living on a fixed income. The cell phone from your Sense of Security Project [the
911 Cell Phone Bank Program administered by the Southern Maine Agency on Aging] was a perfect
• “I wanted to let you know how important the 911 Cell Phone Bank emergency cell phones have
been to our seniors. We gave one to a senior who carries it in her walker. One night, while in her
kitchen, she fell and was badly injured. She was able to crawl to her walker, retrieve her phone and
get emergency help. She tells all her friends how the phone saved her from spending a painful
night on the floor. How wonderful!” - Sue Sabrowski of the Rose City TRIAD
