DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH & CHILDREN - How to Report Suspected Abuse

abuse.jpgA referral of child abuse and or neglect can be made by any person including a child, who has reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or neglect. You may report the matter to the Department of Human Services or any law enforcement agency. The information in a Child Protective Services complaint needs to be provided by the individual who actually has observed the alleged victim or had contact with the child regarding the complaint.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH ISN'T JUST FOR WOMEN

wp-1486314195981.jpgOctober is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The often quoted statistics would suggest this month is devoted, primarily if not entirely, to drawing attention to violence against women: According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in every four women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime; 85% of reported domestic violence entails a woman as the victim; and, every year, at least 1.3 million women are assaulted by their significant other. Certainly, this violence, or any for that matter, against women is unacceptable.
