Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The month of October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We want to raise awareness that violence occurs in established relationships and cause significant harm to the one surviving the relationship. One of the main ways to get involved is to participate in the Women’s Center Toiletry Drive to benefit the survivors receiving help through Womenspace and First Family Center.

Each time a person moves there is a long list of things to buy to make their new home comfortable. This includes the little things we overlook most days. When a person is surviving an abusive relationship and leaves their home, these small necessities become a burden. Donations to this program can make a difference in the lives of others experiencing domestic violence.
