October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.

These activities were as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but had common themes: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived, and connecting those who work to end violence.

In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. Please join us to honor the lives we've lost to domestic violence, and celebrate the Survivors who continue the struggle today.

Together, we can end domestic violence. 




You’re Not Alone

"I cannot thank you enough for your kindness,support, and the help you gave to me and my children."

"I have no idea what I would be doing right now if I hadn’t left the relationship and come here. I am so happy to have the opportunity to get my GED."

"There are some people we thank in our prayers and one of those people is you. You brought sunshine to our lives."
