Every 9 seconds in the U.S. a woman has been assaulted or beaten. Around the world 1 in every 3 women have been beaten, coerced into sex, verbally abused during their lifetime while in a relationship. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women more than car accidents, muggings and rape combined! Everyday in the U.S. at least 3 women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. At least 1 out 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship were threatened with violence or self-harm by their boyfriends when presented with a breakup. Nearly 10 million children annually witness some form of domestic violence in their home. Men who as children witnessed their parent's domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse their girlfriends or wives than a sons of nonviolent parents. To help break this violent cycle, we have to start at the core of the foundation: Children growing up in homes in a domestic violent environment.
To break the silence, the cycle and eradicate domestic violence. We strive to assist victims,survivors and their families by providing them with information, resources and connecting them with services to better aid them through their personal crisis.
We provide support and advocacy services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and their children. We encourage empowerment of survivors and work towards the advancement of all people through awareness and prevention activities.
