Did you know that out of the 63,000 sexual abuse cases investigated by Child Protective Services (CPS), the perpetrator was most often the parent (RAINN.org)?
Domestic violence includes any type of abuse (i.e. physical, sexual, emotional) against a relative, child, intimate partner, roommate, or someone living with you.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please know that if you experienced sexual violence at the hands of a relative, parent, intimate partner, roommate, and/or someone living with you, that this is also domestic violence.
If you experienced sexual and/or domestic violence, you are not alone. Advocates are available 24/7 to listen, provide support, and provide resources if you choose by calling (320) 251-4357.
