For Your Information: Domestic Violence Awareness with Haven House

To bring awareness to domestic violence many around town have put out purple lights

The organization is being extremely visible within the community this month in hopes that people will recognize how big an issue domestic violence and sexual assault is, and that they are there to help.

"On average, almost 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States". That is more than 10 million women and men per year.

Do these facts frighten you or make you feel a little uneasy? Human nature is for us to pretend that it doesn't happen in our community and that it doesn't happen to people we know.

And listeners who want to become donors, we are returning to morning guests chatting about what is happening in Our Community, but that doesn't mean you can't donate online if you want to, look for the orange "Donate Now" button above. It stemmed from the "Day of Unity" which was held in October of 1981 and conceived the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Thousands of dollars in in state grants are going toward helping victims of domestic abuse in the Southern Tier.

They have information and referrals for other services such as legal service, financial help, counseling, housing, employment and medical care.

The Crime Victims Assistance Center is located in Binghamton and provides free counseling to survivors as well as a 24-hour crisis line and advocacy program. "When you ask people, "Are you in favor of healthy relationships for yourself and friends and family?" most answer with a resounds, 'Yes!'"

Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. "We have so many members in the Domestic Violence Taskforce and we try to affect change in the culture", said Beth Crowe, Director of Education for the Family Violence Project.
