October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

"No one really talks about or acknowledges domestic violence in upper socio-economic demographics, but the impact is just as real and, in some ways, even harder to overcome. The Crisis Center helped me tremendously, but more importantly my son has improved as a result of the resources at the Crisis Center. It is one of the few places my challenges have been understood and supported because domestic violence usually only ends once someone dies." - Crisis Center client

We acknowledge Domestic Violence Awareness Month by wearing purple - a color meant to symbolize peace, courage, survival, honor and a dedication to ending violence. Domestic violence is happening and its impact is felt all over our community: in our neighborhoods, at our children's schools, at our churches, at our work places; perhaps even in our own homes.

Your financial contribution to one of the campaigns below will help save the life of a victim and their pet who are in imminent danger or help a victim heal from the trauma they've experienced. It will help break the cycle and prevent a child from becoming a victim or a perpetrator as an adult, and educate a community on the impact domestic violence has on all of us.

On behalf of the adults and children we serve each day, and our community that feels the effects of domestic violence, we thank you for your generous support.
