  •  About 35% of women who were raped as minors also were raped as adults compared to 14% of women without an early rape history.

  • The cost of domestic violence is $8.3 billion dollars annually.

  • 8.0 million work days are lost each year as a result of domestic violence nationally.

LOCAL NUMBERS BROKEN DOWN

 

  • Our county has a population of 40, 703 (20,351.5 women/20,351.5 men) according to the most recent Census data which means:

    • 6,716 women in this county have been victims of domestic violence.

      • 45% of these women have been sexually assaulted by their partners

      • Women who are sexually abused by intimate partners report more risk factors for intimate partner homicides than non-sexually abused women.

  • 1,526 children will witness domestic violence in their homes.

 

**The most important thing to remember is that there is help available if you are in a domestic violence relationship. You are not alone. You have options. We believe you and are here to help you. Come in for free and confidential services at any of our three locations.**
