October is Domestic Violence Prevention month. Domestic violence is a crime that affects men, women, children, families, neighborhoods, and communities. On average 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience domestic violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime.
We encourage all citizens to actively stand against domestic violence in our community.
Sumner’s own Exodus Housing encourages independence, empowerment and self-sufficiency for families fleeing domestic violence by providing access to permanent housing, tailored services and community resources. Learn more about how you can help, including donations.
