“Intimate Partner Violence in our Community”
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear. Their vision is that one day, every woman in Maryland will be safe in her own home. Come and increase your awareness of the problem of intimate partner violence and learn how you can help women in need. Visit House of Ruth on the web at www.hruth.org.
