A Look Back at Domestic Violence Awareness Month

A Look Back at October and Domestic Violence Awareness Month

It feels like Domestic Violence Awareness Month has gone by in a blur this year, and we wanted to fill you in on everything that we did to celebrate and raise awareness throughout the month! Thank you for your part in sharing our message with others, financially supporting our efforts, and for raising awareness about domestic violence in our community.

To always stay up to date with SafeHaven activities, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.  We are always excited to post what is happening and want to keep you in the loop!

A Note from Our CEO for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The City of Fort Worth and The City of Arlington recognized the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and celebrated SafeHaven’s 40th year anniversary of our Fort Worth location!

We honored friends and colleagues at the Legacy of Women Awards Luncheon, with guest speaker, Terry Bradshaw leaving everyone inspired and laughing!

And at “home”, our emergency shelters in Fort Worth and Arlington scheduled several activities for clients and staff from art therapy groups for mom’s to a festive Halloween carnival for the kids!

The month of October was booked with speaking engagements, presentations, collaborative partnerships with local agencies, and tons of fundraisers/donation drives to support the clients we serve.  This time of year is always a reminder to our clients (and us too!) that we are not alone in our efforts to end domestic violence.

Thank you for joining us as we celebrated all of the good things we see everyday here, and for helping us raise awareness about available resources.  We can only put a stop to domestic violence in Tarrant County if we work together, and your support is a constant reminder that we are not alone!

 

If you would like to participate in activities next October, we would love to talk with you!
