Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Oct 1 – Oct 31 all-day

Although domestic violence can be a difficult topic to discuss, it’s important that we stay informed and aware of the issues of domestic violence and how it affects our community so that we can better support survivors. Awareness is one of the best ways that we can combat the problem.

Did you know that 1 in 4 men and 1 in 7 women are affected by intimate partner violence every year?

WIN Victim Services (formerly Women in Need) is working hard every day to prevent these issues by getting out into the community and providing training and education on the subject. We are also providing free and confidential services to survivors of domestic violence, so they can rebuild their confidence and their life and get on a better path for the future. Learn more below!

 

Our counselors provide empowerment and encouragement counseling on an individual basis to help survivors work through trauma and move toward confidence.

WIN advocates are available anytime, day or night, to answer the hotline and provide support.

Legal advocates can help survivors attain a protection order against their abusers by assisting with paperwork and accompanying survivors in court.

WIN offers a variety of support group formats where clients can interact with other survivors to find support and empowerment. All sessions are guided by a counselor.

Clients with nowhere safe to stay can enter into our emergency shelter program while they work to build confidence and independence.

 

Donate

As a nonprofit, WIN needs generous donations in order to operate and provide free services to survivors. The gift of items or monetary support is so appreciated! Check out our donations page for more information.

Include WIN in Your October Events

If you are already hosting an awareness even in October, WIN would love to be a part of it. Email community@winservices.org with information about your event, so we can plan accordingly.

Invite an Advocate to Give a Presentation/Training

If you are part of a community organization or a group that would like to learn more about domestic violence awareness and how you can get involved, email community@winservices.org to connect with an advocate and learn how you can receive training.

Our volunteers are critical to our organization’s ability to provide services. As a volunteer, you will receive full training to be able to attend events, connect with clients, and more. If you are interested in getting involved, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at KristyT@winservices.org.
