Awareness Events Support Domestic Violence Prevention

Galveston, TX – This October, The Resource & Crisis Center of Galveston County (RCC) is launching an outreach and education campaign to highlight National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) benefitting victims of domestic violence in Galveston County.

“Our agency is committed to promoting the safety, well-being, and best interest of victims of family violence, sexual assault, and child abuse,” said Bonnie Martin, Executive Director of RCC. “It’s exciting to see how far we have come after 36 years of serving victims in Galveston County. We’re no longer just talking about services, but how to make real social change to advocate for the prevention of this epidemic violence that impacts the entire community.”

DVAM is an opportunity for domestic violence organizations to connect with the community through meaningful awareness raising events. RCC is proud to be part of a coordinated effort by all corners of the community – law enforcement, advocates, community groups, and schools – to declare domestic violence will not be tolerated in our community. Upcoming events directly benefitting RCC include:

  • All month long RCC Resale shops in Galveston, La Marque and League City will display an educational domestic violence exhibit M-Sat 10am-6pm and Sun 12pm-4pm;
  • October 15th – Yoga at Stewart Beach with Yoga Haven from 6p-7pm (free with a donation of cleaning supplies or personal hygiene product); and,
  • October 8th – The League City Police Department will host a Candlelight Vigil and collect donations from 7pm-8pm.

RCC is always seeking volunteers to provide medical accompaniment and advocate services. For more information on volunteering and events, please visit: http://rccgc.org/

The Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County (RCC) is the only organization in the region that provides victims of sexual assault and family violence with therapeutic services, legal services, case management, medical accompaniment and residential services. Additional opportunities for our clients to become self-sufficient include educational support and guidance, financial planning, job skill training, and daycare assistance. RCC’s 24-hour crisis hotline provides confidential support services for victims of family violence and sexual assault: 1 (888) 919-7233 (SAFE).

RCC in the News!

Last month before Galveston City Council, representatives of the Resource & Crisis Center testified to successfully enact zoning changes that will benefit RCC, our clients and the community. Read about it in this opinion piece published in the Galveston County Daily News ‘Zoning Change for Crisis Center Good Move for the Community’.

Upcoming: Events in October Recognizing 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.

In October, join the Resource & Crisis Center to stand together in solidarity as we support victims and educate the community at upcoming events that are currently being scheduled: Yoga on the Beach and Movie Night (dates TBA). Until then, 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. Thank you for your continued support!
