Domestic Violence in Children
October 04, 2016

IMPACT OF EXPOSURE TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  *from National Child Traumatic Stress Network Newborn to 5: Sleep and/or eating disruptions, withdrawal/lack  See more

THE STORY:

Home of the Sparrow staff understands that domestic violence has long lasting effects on physical, psychological and interpersonal well-being. Whether it is an Intake Coordinator assisting a caller looking for help to escape a dangerous situation, or the HOS Adult Therapist teaching a resident new techniques to manage stress and anxiety, HOS acknowledges the effects of domestic violence from all angles. HOS programs allows victims to learn and relearn the life skills needed for independence. Participation in HOS programs gives victims the time they need to analyze their lives, make decisions, and adapt to the changes needed to develop a lasting self-reliance. 

In general, all individuals who enter shelter services have some sort of mental health concerns, varying from depression and lack of confidence to anxiety and post-traumatic stress. An average of 70% of HOS clients come from domestic violence backgrounds each year. These backgrounds are sometimes paired with experiences in human trafficking, incarceration, single parenting, or illness. Because these women already took the first, most dificult step to derange from their dangerous environment and lifestyles, Home of the Sparrow feels the need to ease some of their hardships and provide them with the proper services to return to a lifestyle of independence and self-sufficiency.
