The October Domestic Violence Drive went splendidly. We had hundreds turn out for a very successful two days. The shelters were thrilled with our contribution.
HealthLink Initiative is dedicated to relieving the strain of health and wellness costs for victims of abuse. One in every four women and one in every nine men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. The annual cost of domestic violence exceeds $8.8 billion each year, of which $5.8 billion is for health-related costs. This financial burden in addition to the emotional cost can be a limiting factor in making a change to a new and safer life.
HLI will continue to support this need and save lives.
