October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We support domestic violence survivors and work hard year round to amplify their voice. Domestic Violence includes physical and psychological abuse; physical violence is often accompanied by emotionally abusive behavior as part of a much larger, systematic pattern of dominance and control. The devastating consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.
If you or someone you know is living in fear of domestic violence – help is just a phone call away. You can call Providence House 24-hours a day at 1-800-246-8910. The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Victim-Witness Advocacy Unit can be reached at 732-929-2195.
