SILENCE THE VIOLENCE
"Every 9 seconds another woman is beaten or assaulted by her partner. The truth is that home should be a place of comfort, safety and refuge, yet, for those affected by domestic violence, home is often the place most feared. For many, the abuse continues for months, if not years, not because this behavior is condoned, but because these women are stricken with fear, and threatened with their life if they leave.
This week, your purchase provides crisis intervention, shelter, protection and support for women and children experiencing domestic abuse. With your support, professionals will assess the situation and devise a safety plan to remove a woman and her children from their abuser. They will then be taken to an emergency shelter where they will receive support, counseling, legal assistance and above all, freedom from abuse.”
Please go to www.sevenly.org to help support and keep women and children experiencing domestic abuse safe. Also, please reblog this so people can become more aware of not only this website, but domestic abuse in general. It is very serious and many victims do not choose to speak up or cannot. If you or anyone you know needs help personally finding a shelter or access to other resources, or just someone to talk to, you can always message me, anonymously or not, and I will try help you in any way I can.
