Domestic violence causes more injuries to women in the United States between the ages of 15 and 44 than car accidents, muggings and rapes combined. With statistics like this, the services Laurel House provides are more important than ever.
Here are some ways you can help to combat domestic violence -
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Wear a purple ribbon to show your support and commitment to the elimination of domestic violence.
When a woman decides to leave a violent relationship and seek safety, more often than not, she and the children leave with the clothes on their backs and not much else. While at Laurel House, these families are provided with some basic items to help with this transition. We also provide past shelter residents and participants in our Bridge Program household items to start them on their road to violence-free lives.Laurel House Ongoing Needs
