Domestic violence: a serious issue that takes many forms

Community members hold candles during a Domestic Violence Vigil

The Glendale Police Department has joined forces with Luke Air Force Base, Glendale City Court, Adult Probation and the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Domestic Violence Council to spread the word during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month that domestic violence is a serious crime where abusers will be held accountable. Domestic violence includes abuse from a family member, household member or intimate partner. "The good news is that Missouri women, children and men victimized by domestic violence have more access to help and protection than they have ever had before", said Cheryl Parker, Dent County Women's Crisis Center outreach/court advocate.

"They live in fear, isolation and uncertainty".

"To show them what the red flags are to look for and to show them that they're not alone and that there are people there that care about them that want to help them", Booth said.

S.H.A.R.E. House has been a staple in the Douglas County community providing services to those victims in need of a safe haven when fleeing from domestic violence.

Intimate partner violence is when the act is committed by a spouse or significant other.

"The only way that this epidemic will ever be truly recognized is if it is talked about", Stovall added. "If awareness is taught and survivors are helped, only then can a difference be made".

"We wanted the student body to be more involved and events like this help give the Human Services students their first exposure to helping people within their own community", said Dochterman. Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to advance prevention and awareness efforts in Missouri. The victim themselves may feel too scared to ever even mention it. We're more educated than that, we're smarter than that, we have more money.

Connors says, "If they are in abusive situations or see that their parents are in abusive situations that will color the way they look at the world". We accomplish this by providing citizens of Rutherford County with the resources and assistance necessary to effectively deal with the personal, social, and legal implications of victimization by domestic violence and sexual assault. "It's time to find an end".
