Every year, 1,510,455 women and 834,732 men are victims of physical violence by someone they know. This means that every 37.8 seconds, somewhere in America a man is battered. Every 9 seconds, somewhere in America a woman is battered. Six children in every classroom witness domestic violence and four of these six children are direct victims of abuse and/or neglect. It is likely that you know someone, or are someone who is in an abusive relationship. The only way we can end domestic violence is to speak out!
Break the Silence against Domestic Violence is a non-profit organization that serves men, women, and children affected by violence. We are committed to speaking out, through education, individualized services, and providing an avenue for survivors to begin their healing process.
