The YWCA is hosting domestic violence information sessions throughout the county. Sessions will discuss signs of domestic violence, how to get help, and the resources available to residents.
The YWCA hosts community education sessions surrounding the topic of domestic violence. These sessions run 90 minutes and are facilitated by a crisis intervention expert from the YWCA with potential involvement from Anne Arundel County Police domestic violence officers. The purpose of these sessions hosted throughout the county is to bring an awareness to the signs of domestic violence, the resources available, and an opportunity to ask questions and/or discuss the issues that impede a victim from leaving their abuser. One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence at some point in her life with the average age being 24-37. This is an issue that greatly impacts our community and this is an opportunity to assist people regain their safety, independence, and strong sense of self. These are open forums with a presentation, handout/booklet identifying the signs, and opportunity to meet the YWCA. No registration required. Call the YWCA at 410.626.7800 regarding any questions.
