What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behavior that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological.
Since 2005, the "Jiggle Butt Ladies", a dynamic group of volunteers in Arlington, have put the "fun" in fundraising with their annual fun run with proceeds benefiting SafeHaven. We are so grateful for their continued support in ending domestic violence and building a community of strong women working together!
