Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is domestic violence awareness month.
Domestic violence awareness month is acknowledged as a way to mourn those who died as a result of domestic violence, to celebrate those who have survived domestic violence, and to connect those who work to end domestic violence.
Locally, Catholic Charities Regional Agency runs Christina House , a domestic violence shelter for women and children in Columbiana County. The program offers crisis intervention, temporary shelter, a victim’s legal advocate, case management and emotional support.
How can you help?

You can also help by providing support to a (potential) victim of domestic violence. If you see any signs of abuse or violence, encourage that individual to seek help. There are local, state and national support groups, hotlines and shelters.
