Dear friends, October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Combating domestic violence is one of the most important challenges we face today, and COVID-19 has only exacerbated the problem.
This week, the county announced an investment of $15 million in funding for domestic violence services for Maricopa County residents.
If you or a loved one needs resources related to domestic or sexual violence, visit the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence (acesdv.org) or dial 602-279-2980 to speak with a victim’s services specialist.
Together we can support each other in our communities and end domestic and sexual violence.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office if you have questions, concerns or need help finding resources.
As always, stay healthy!
You may reach us at 602-506-7562 or email@example.com.
