Mesa agencies support Domestic Violence Awareness Month with display by azhttp

In Arizona, a woman is murdered by her husband or boyfriend every four days.

In an effort to bring attention and awareness to this staggering problem,

the City of Mesa and Save the Family Foundation of Arizona have joined

forces to create a display at the Main Library, 64 E. First St., which will

run through the month of October. The display contains artwork and

stories from the mothers and children in Save the Family’s program.

Visitors to the display will learn to recognize domestic violence, see how

domestic violence victims are working to turn their lives around as well as

find out how they can volunteer and help be part of the solution. The

display coincides with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Save the Family provides transitional housing and case management services

to more than 300 families a year. With 159 housing units serving homeless

families with children throughout the Valley, Save the Family is changing

the face of homelessness and helping many women and children of domestic

violence get a fresh start. Through programs like Career Development, Legal

Assistance and domestic violence and parenting classes, clients in Save the

Family’s program learn to become both economically and emotionally

self-sufficient.

For more information, contact Save the Family Volunteer Director Andrea Sok

at 480-898-0228, extension 215.
