A Child’s Place CASA Friendraiser

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To help raise awareness, A Child’s Place CASA and the Hancock County Museum will be hosting a friendraiser at the museum on October 30th at 6:30 p.m.

Although domestic violence only involves abuse between spouses or partners, the link between domestic violence and child abuse is well documented. Consider the following:

  • Seventy percent of women in domestic violence shelters say that their abusers were also guilty of child abuse.
  • Children who grow up in homes where domestic violence occurs are fifteen percent more likely to be abused or have one of their siblings be abused.
  • Women who have been victims of domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse a child.

Please join us in learning more about A Child’s Place CASA and how you can help. For more information please call (304) 737-4444 or (304) 564-4800.
