October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic violence occurs when one person in an intimate relationship exercises power and control over the other through a pattern of intentional behaviors including emotional, physical, sexual, economic, and verbal abuse.
Domestic violence affects both men and women, and is the leading cause of injury to women ages 15-44 in the United States. Domestic violence isn’t just the problem of the abused and abuser. It isn’t a question of race or income, and it doesn’t just happen "somewhere else." As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are called not only to pray for others, but to take action when we see injustice.

Opportunities abound in North Texas for making a positive impact at any stage of the “pipeline” and breaking the cycle of incarceration. Below is a list of area organizations that would greatly benefit from volunteers or donations from individuals, groups and businesses.
