October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.

This is a time to celebrate survivors, raise awareness, and confirm our commitment to preventing intimate partner violence in our community. 

What is domestic violence?  Abusive behavior which one intimate partner uses to maintain control over another that can include physical, sexual, emotional, economic, and psychological threats or actions that influence another person.  Sadly, in 2018 alone, there were 86 confirmed deaths related to domestic violence in Arizona.  Join us in taking a stand against domestic violence and show your support for survivors.  #ItCanStop.

 Many researchers have concluded that some children who witness or are victims of domestic violence experience a profound and lasting impact on their lives and hopes for the future.  “A child’s developing brain can mistakenly encode the violence,” says Children of Domestic Violence, adding that kids can grow up believing that violence is normal and that they are to blame for it.  To learn more, click here: 

 The National Domestic Violence Hotline is available 24/7 to talk confidentially with anyone in the United States that is experiencing domestic violence, seeking resources or information, or questioning unhealthy aspects of their relationship.  To get help,  call 1-800-799-7233  or click here
