When violence occurs within the home, everyone within that home becomes a victim (even if you only witness it). Domestic violence is a national crisis that inflicts the homes of thousands of children on a daily basis. Domestic violence has been and is still seen by many as a personal problem since it usually occurs within the home but this is a problem that needs public attention. Violence is unacceptable regardless of the location or the identity or relation of the victim. Domestic violence happens on different levels and in different stages. Remember no two victims experience DV the same no matter how similar the circumstances are. If you are unaware or would like to familiarize yourself with the statistics and facts surrounding domestic violence, this month is the perfect month to do so. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and the National Domestic Violence Hotline, as well as countless of other national and local organizations, are hosting events throughout the month to bring more awareness to your community.
