On average, nearly 24 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 12 million women and men. 30 to 60% of perpetrators, of intimate partner violence, also abuse children in the household, showing a common link between domestic violence and child abuse.
All or most of us have had contact (maybe unwittingly) with a woman or child that has been abused or in an abusive relationship. Nothing on earth compares to the torture and horror that they live every single day. The fear is overwhelming to the point that they are emotionally paralyzed. For many it’s much easier to look the other way, but we have made the conscious choice to try to make their quest for freedom a little less worrisome. We long to see them get to safety and sleep in safety. There is no better feeling.
Yes, this is a somber, yet horrifying subject, but unfortunately very real…so, will you help us to help them?
