CASDA Marks Start Of Domestic Violence Awareness Month

CASDA Marks Start Of Domestic Violence Awareness Month”

On a single night last September, 476 victims of domestic violence across Colorado found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing.

Special events are planned October 3 and 11.

"Domestic violence happens in all communities -and in ours". One in four women will be victims of domestic violence in their lifetime.

Care Lodge has been helping people in east MS deal with domestic violence issues and abuse for more than 30 years. Dillon works as the Event Coordinator for the Shelter for Help in Emergency.

Township Trustee Steve Ross said Township Resolution 25-2017, which trustees passed during the September 20 township meeting, is a way for the township to recognize the perseverant work done by the Family Violence Prevention Center or Greene County, 380 Bellbrook Ave.in Xenia, other community organizations as well as those who are victims of domestic violence.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to advance prevention and awareness efforts in Missouri.

Purple flags were also placed in the front lawn of the Douglas County Courthouse in support and recognition of the victims and survivors of abuse in the region. "So we need to look at all the ripple effects that domestic violence has on our community".

During the past three decades, Missouri has made significant advancements in securing rights, protections and services for victims of domestic violence. However, there is a way to make sure victims leave in a safe and effective way. "We did 2,296 RTA calls, which are response team advocate calls, those are calls that an advocate goes on with law enforcement to domestic violence calls and as of the end of August this year we are at 1,688 RTA calls". There is no charge for any presentations to the public.
