Women & Children First is recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness month today with #PurpleTuesday.
Snap a picture of yourself wearing purple and post it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to share that you are taking a stand against domestic violence.
Last year, Women and Children First provided services to more than 580 victims of domestic violence and their children staying at the shelter. In just the past two months, WCF received 1,500+ calls, assisted with more than 160 individual file orders of protection and offered shelter to more than 40 guests. National statistics indicate that one in three women and one in four men will be physically abused by an intimate partner, and every 30 seconds 10 men or women experience physical abuse.
Women & Children First provides vital services in our community, offering crisis intervention, safe shelter, social/legal advocacy and support services.
