October is National Domestic Violence Awarness Month

The Family Violence/Sexual Assault Unit program strives to empower and support survivors of domestic and sexual assault. The goal is to help them make choices that will enable them to live productive lives without fear and violence. The Family Violence/Sexual Assault Unit Child Advocacy Center provides support and services to children who frequently are exposed to the same abusive behavior giving them a voice because often abused children are left feeling they have no voice and that no one is listening when they do speak.

The Unit’s values include Safety, Prevention, Accountability, Diversity/Equality, Collaboration, Education, Empowerment/Autonomy and Leadership. The Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit has combated the effects of domestic violence and sexual assault; ultimately empowering victims in becoming survivors.
