October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) was launched nationwide in October 1987 as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues while raising awareness for those issues.
Operation Care is taking a stand against domestic violence and reminding our community that there are still countless people–victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities–impacted by domestic violence. #takeastand #WeAreResilient

“A person cannot abuse the men, women, and children in our community and think that we will turn away. We WILL take a stand, and we encourage survivors to tell their stories so that together we can stop the abuse. We cannot lose another life because of domestic violence. As a community we must ALL TAKE A STAND.”
