OHIO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE NETWORK wrote -
The Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) is launching this Crowdrise fundraiser in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Each year in October we strive to create a greater awareness of the problem and to honor the survivors and recognize those who work every day to end violence in our homes. ODVN, Ohio’s statewide coalition for 25 years, has served as Ohio’s leading voice in strengthening Ohio’s response to domestic violence survivors through services, training, education and policy advocacy.
We know that:
One-third of all women in Ohio will be a victim of physical violence, stalking or rape in their life time.
The stark reality is that every day in Ohio women are abused.
Every day Ohio’s domestic violence programs serve an average of 2,000 women and children.
And every day the Ohio Domestic Violence Network makes a positive difference through services, education and awareness.
