No One Has to Take Domestic Abuse – Help is Available

Leave a comment

Are you or someone you know or love a victim of domestic violence? Such abuse affects every community: women and men; people of any age, sexual orientation, ability, faith, or ethnic background; people who are rich or poor, highly educated or not.

Sadly, many victims choose to do nothing about their plight and continue to suffer, often out of embarrassment or fear. For this and so many other reasons, October has been designated Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

There is confidential help available in our area. If you or a loved one or friend is suffering, please reach out.
