The mission of the Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County is to promote the safety, well-being, and best interest of victims of family violence, sexual assault, and child abuse and to advocate for the prevention of such crimes.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

DV-Awareness-Month1October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is the time of year to recognize the devastation that interpersonal violence brings upon families and children in our community. Every year, this is a unique opportunity to inform the community about the dynamics of domestic violence and the resources available to help keep the victim safe and secure. The Resource & Crisis Center provides some of the most important resources available to victims of domestic violence in Galveston County.

Domestic violence affects every one in the community. Both men and women can be victims or perpetrators. Interpersonal violence effects people of all ages, from childhood to the elderly (also known as elder abuse). Domestic violence knows no social or economic boundaries. Survivors are not the only victims of domestic violence – families, friends, and co-workers suffer from the presence of violence.

This month, stand together in solidarity with victims of domestic violence. There are many ways that you can become involved in raising awareness and supporting victims in our very own community. You can organize a drive to collect goods for the emergency shelter, invite an RCC speaker to your church, club, or workplace to learn more about domestic violence, share this website on Facebook, or sign-up to volunteer with RCC. And of course, join the Resource & Crisis Center as we support victims and educate the community at upcoming our events Yoga on the Beach and Movie Night (dates tba).
