THE STORY:

The Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence is a nonprofit organization that has served Arkansas since 1981.  There are 31 domestic violence shelters across the state of Arkansas.  Membership consists of domestic violence service providers and others who support the philosophy, goals, and objectives of our organization.  Our mission is to eliminate domestic violence and promote healthy families.  The impact of domestic violence in Arkansas is far reaching.

I hope that, one day, all girls will get a good education so they can support themselves and their children, if it became necessary. No girl should ever get married before she has lived on her own and has advanced in her job to the point that she can be independent. If she met a man who turned out to be an abuser, she would never be trapped financially. This is what it means when women say they stay in the relationship "for the sake of the children." The emotional toll it takes on the children is bad, but it would be worse if the mother left her husband and then had to live in an apartment on the rent she could afford. That would put her in a bad neighborhood where her kids would be in danger in school and after. So, she stays, and puts up with her husbands' abuse until it gets so bad that she has to leave, no matter what. 2 years ago
