Domestic Violence Awareness

October 28, 2020

Domestic Violence Awareness month originally began as the specific time organizations could come together and unite against domestic violence or abuse, also known as Intimate Partner Violence. They organized at conferences, rallied calls to action, and spread awareness. 

If you are interested in attending an event or learning more, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) has different opportunities all month as well as educational resources on their website

We are also incredibly fortunate to have Catalyst Domestic Violence Services here in the North State: Their 24-hour Hotline is (800)-895-8476

Intimate Partner Violence, or IPV, can be a complex and sensitive topic to discuss. We hope that our blog is informative and helpful in the event that you know of someone who can use the information. As an organization committed to promoting healthy families and improved conditions for all households to thrive it is important that you are knowledgeable.

September is Hunger Action Month

September 11, 2020

September is National Hunger Action Month. The specified time we call to attention the reality of food insecurity in California, particularly our North State.
