ODESSA, Texas (FOX 24) – We’re highlighting a Basin nonprofit that helps women in a wide variety of difficult situations, everything from single moms having a hard time financially, to those trying to escape violent relationships.
Rosina Britton is a survivor. This mother of two is now sharing her heart wrenching story.
“He beat me with a small baby bat and left me for dead,” said Britton.
She’s also a volunteer in hopes of helping others.
“I’ve become a lot stronger than what I used to be, a lot,” said Britton. “I love helping them, I love it.”
“They come in raggedy or broken and once we give them empowerment, we give them prayer, we give them the lord and they change their lives,” said Theresa Servin, The Well Director.
The Well opened its doors in Odessa in 2015.
“We help with snap benefits, we help with legal intakes,” said Servin. “We do help with rent and utilities in some cases.”
Servin has her own painful past.
“I was in a domestic violence situation for five years, I ended up with 32 stitches in my face,” said Servin.
Volunteer Jesse Porras knows a lot of women need help.
“It feels good because myself, I have four sisters,” said Porras. “One of my sisters is a single mother and my other sister lost her husband.”
The nonprofit helps so many, like Rosina. She says she’s grateful and says it’s given her a second chance.
“I feel like I’m a lot better, I’m growing,” said Britton.
In the past year alone, The Well has helped about 600 women in the Basin.
