Did you know domestic violence affects millions of women and men each year?

Help us spread the word this month as we recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Throughout October, we seek to raise visibility for those affected daily by physical, emotional or mental abuse.

Statistics show women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence – nearly 3x the national average.

If you or a loved one is a victim of domestic violence, there are resources available that can help. Specialists are available 24/7/365 to talk confidentially with anyone dealing with domestic violence.
