Domestic Violence is a serious issue that is a known and horrible epidemic. Per the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Further, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been physically abused by an intimate partner. 1 in 7 women and 1 in 18 men have been stalked. About 19% of domestic violence involes a weapon. On average approximately 20,800 calls are made to domestic violence hotlines.
Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation, founded in February 2016, is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, organization that advocates for survivors/victims of abuse and takes action to spread awareness about bullying, domestic and teen violence prevention.
We strive to empower girls and women to live healthy, productive and fulfilling lives.
