Domestic Violence Awareness events planned


In 2005, Hope Cottage gave shelter to 224 women and their children. From the beginning of 2006 through Aug. 31, 160 women and children have sought shelter.

“For years, we sheltered about 10 women and children a month, then it increased to 12, and then to 15 a month. Now we are averaging 18 every month,” Candlish said.

Thursday, Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. a candlelight vigil will be held on the courthouse lawn for women killed in Arkansas as a result of domestic violence. Candles will be provided.

I recently read that according to the DoJ domestic violence incidents have gone down in recent years. I think that it is in great part thanks to the efforts of shelters. Bless them one and all.
