On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year. If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence, there is help readily available.
ACCORD Community Action Agency offers access to opportunities, resources, and services to strengthen individuals, families, and communities. Free and confidential support services are available through ACCORD for domestic violence victims and their children at their 24-hour Domestic Violence hotline: 1 (800) 593-5322. In 1987, ACCORD began administering their Domestic Violence Prevention Program. Today, ACCORD secures approximately $7 million in grant funds each year to provide residents with services including small business, child care referral, domestic violence, emergency food, Head Start, homeless and housing, and after school programs.
With nearly 8 million days of paid work each year lost due to domestic violence issues, join us in bringing awareness to Domestic Violence during the month of October!
