EUGENE, Ore. — There’s a new nonprofit in our area for spouses of those in law enforcement.
Being married to someone in law enforcement can be hard, so a couple of ladies recently created the group Sisters in Law.
They meet once a month to offer support, and they bring in speakers to talk about a number of topics, most recently marriage.
The group is also about having fun and fundraising.
“Everyone is going through the same thing you are, and they have the same feelings and thoughts, and you can talk to them about it,” said Samie Core, wife of an Oregon State Police trooper.
“Help us learn how to cope with what our husbands are dealing with is really important, really helpful, and probably crucial to a lot of relationships,” said Haley Martin, wife of an Oregon State Police trooper.
Their first fundraiser, Shop with a Cop, is Thursday, Aug. 21. They plan on taking some of the kids shopping from the families of the recent mill fire in Springfield.
