Meet Collete

My name is Collete Ann Rinkel, I was once a victim, but with the help of Child and Family, I am now a hero.

In 2021, I almost lost my life to my abusive partner of 8 terrible years. That relationship not only took my self-worth, but it also took my soul; I was a shell of a human and tried to end my own life because of it.
