On average, more than 3 women are murdered by their boyfriend or husband on a daily basis in the United States. While this number is shockingly high, thankfully it is not representative of the clients that we see on a daily basis.   Our clients deal with a range of abuse on  a regular basis, including physical violence, but they also might find themselves in emotionally abusive relationships, isolated from friends and family, stalked by a past partner or having their pets or family members threatened.  Learn more about the widespread issue of domestic violence at our first open community education event in Hillsborough!

FVPC will be hosting a Domestic Violence 101 community education event at the Hillsborough Public Library on Monday August 23th  at 6:30. The event will focus on:

1. Understanding the basics of domestic violence

2. Exploring common myths and stereotypes

3. Finding out about the services and resources FVPC provides

4.Learning ways you can help!

Domestic violence affects your friends, family members, and co-workers.  Learn more about what you can do to help.
