October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, please seek help.
If you know someone dealing with domestic violence in his or her home or an intimate relationship you can offer support that could change the life of a victim of domestic violence. You may have a friend who is feeling alone and afraid. A simple act of kindness, an offer of support can mean the world to a victim of domestic violence.
Here are resources for victims and those who wish to support a victim.
