Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence affects everyone. 1 in 4 women, 1 in 9 men and 1 in 2 people who are transgender have or will experience some degree of relationship violence in their life. 1 in 15 children will witness relationship violence. In Marion county alone, 9 people have lost their lives due to domestic violence in 2019. These statistics make awareness of the issue and support for those impacted by domestic violence all the more important to prevent and stop it.

If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic violence and need help to leave, discuss a safety plan or are in need of support due to past experience, 211 is available 24/7 365 days a year to connect you with resources in your area.
