Why Should We Be Concerned About Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is the number one cause of injury to women in the US and has been declared a national threat to health by the US Surgeon General.

A woman is battered every 15 seconds in the US.

It is estimated that between $200-$300 million a year is lost in employee productivity as a result of domestic violence

AND.... If you are not safe in your own home, then where are you safe?
