Every February across the United States, teens and those who support them join together for a national effort to raise awareness to teen dating violence. Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults. And nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors. By joining together every February, we can spread awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!
Join us on October for two very important events regarding Domestic Violence. At 10:00 am meet us at city hall with Mayor Hawke for the reading of the proclamation and 6:30 for a Vigil to honor the victims and support the survivors. This is a time where we can support the hurting.
To remember those who have lost their lives and to support the survivors. Have a conversation, support someone you know who is experiencing this. Become educated about what is abuse. Most of all send someone a smile, they may need it.
The reading of the Domestic Violence Proclamation by Mayor Hawke is supported by the Gardner criminal resources. The police dept, DA victim services.

As human beings, we are created for relationships from the moment of conception. From the moment of our birth, we form connections with other people for survival, nurture, and physical/emotional growth and well-being. When these basic connections do not work properly, a life-long struggle ensues, leaving a person frustrated, angry and most of all unhappy with hardly any understanding of what went wrong or what needs to be changed in themselves or in their relationships with others. Fortunately, our services focus on some of these relational struggles that are often a result of unhealthy family dynamics of the past. At Voices of Truth, we offer hope and encouragement to those seeking to make changes in their lives.
