The Connected - June 2017
View this email in your browser
The idea behind Father’s Day as a time to acknowledge what it takes to raise children -- and the precious gift of being a parent -- is a wonderful reason to celebrate. In recognition of Father's Day, we want to honor the many men who work to end abuse and serve as positive role models for their families and communities. Male voices can play a crucial role in the movement to end domestic violence. Fathers who model respectful relationship behaviors and talk about domestic violence with their children, help further prevention efforts by educating the next generation. There are many men’s organizations doing inspiring work to promote healthy relationships and end domestic violence and sexual assault.

Is there a man who has made a positive impact on your life?  Celebrate him during the month of June by:
  • Sharing a post on social media
  • Making a donation to your local domestic violence agency
  • Shopping with Smile.Amazon.com for a Father's Day gift choosing Crisis Connection, Inc. as your charitable organization

While we have taken this opportunity to highlight the role of men in the fight against domestic violence, it is important to remember that this is a serious social problem and a national health concern with significant negative impacts on everyone in our communities.  It occurs among all ethnic groups, cultures, ages, income levels, faiths, and education levels.

Many of us will come into contact with domestic violence in our daily lives - either in the workplace or personal lives.  Our statistics from 2016 show that there is still much work to be done in our eight county service area to eradicate this problem.

We appreciate your support in our efforts to make a difference and help those in need.
