Strides for Safe Relationships is an awareness event for domestic violence awareness month. This is an annual event that raises awareness about relationship violence in all of its forms and the impact of domestic violence on the community. The event includes a march against domestic violence and a vigil in memory of the victims who lost their lives to abusive partner in North Carolina in the last year. There will also be educational information on how to support survivors of domestic violence, as well as support those currently being abused by a partner. Please join Elon University’s Health Promotion, EFFECT, AXO, and Family Abuse Services to spread awareness and support survivors of domestic violence.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
One of our events during DVAM is our Annual Wine Tasting Event! This year’s Wine Tasting event has been scheduled for Friday, October 9th, 2015. Our goal is to spread awareness about domestic violence in Alamance County and to raise money for Family Abuse Services. This year we are trying to renovate our Shelter. Our shelter provides support to victims fleeing Domestic Violence who are in imminent danger. Victims and their children are able to stay safe while obtaining support and case management services in order to heal and rebuild their lives while in our shelter program.
