October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month and the Family Violence Center (FVC) at NAM is starting its “You Are Not Alone” campaign with their annual Memorial Garden Ceremony on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, at 8:30 a.m.
The dedication of the Memorial Garden will be in front of the main NAM building. The garden is there to remind domestic violence victims and survivors that they are not alone in their situation and that there are resources and support available to them.
Anyone wishing to attend the ceremony may pick up a FREE yellow flag from NAM and sign or put a message on it, to place it in the garden below the purple flags - which represent those who have lost their lives from domestic violence - and commemorate anyone they may know who has or is struggling from domestic violence.
The Family Violence Center is dedicated to breaking the cycle of violence by assisting victims of domestic and sexual violence through crisis intervention, long-term support services, and through community violence and awareness prevention education. They also offer year-round programs, workshops and different events that bring awareness to the domestic violence problem in the area. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence please contact the FVC hotline at 281-885-4673.
