In support of victims of domestic violence, SJFMC staff joined together to wear purple and raise funds on Thursday, October 18. Proceeds benefited the AVANZAR (formerly The Women’s Center of Atlantic County), The Providence House in Burlington County and Salem County Women’s Services.
The campaign raised awareness about domestic, spousal and teen dating violence. Women are the primary victims of domestic violence, but remember both men and women can fall victim. In fact, one in three women and one in four men will experience intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetimes.
