As you may already know, domestic violence is a serious problem, affecting families throughout the nation regardless of race, religion, economic status and educational level. Over 4,000 women are killed by their husbands or boyfriends each year. Saddest of all is the fact that children who witness violence in the home will very likely repeat the cycle, creating the next generation of abusers and victims.
Despite grim statistics associate with abuse, there is hope. Everyday, hundreds of women and their children seek safety and comfort in domestic violence shelters across the county. There they are given the opportunity to make their own decisions and learn more about legal options, relationships and themselves. Touching Heart is one of these programs.
If you have ever considered volunteering for a worthwhile cause, we invite you to come and help us help victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children. Your time, energy and gift could easily make a difference in the lives of woman and children living in domestic violence.
Give us a call at (586) 738-0891 or send an email to discuss volunteer opportunities with us!
