October: Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Join us this October to honor, celebrate, and support those affected by domestic violence and the advocates that are working to end it. 

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) evolved from the “Day of Unity” founded in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. DVAM has been celebrated nationally since 1987.

Domestic violence is a problem right here in Chittenden County.

Last year, the hotline fielded 4,323 calls, assisting individuals in crisis, and offering emergency services, support and referrals.

Show your support for those affected by domestic violence and help raise awareness by attending an event.
