Domestic Violence Awareness Month

 In News

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.
