Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 1st, 2008 by flanews

The state honored two domestic violence shelters today for their work to help abuse victims. Governor Charlie Crist presented awards to representatives from Sunrise of Pasco County and Harbor House of Central Florida for programs aimed at preventing domestic violence. Last year more than 150,000 people called abuse hotlines in Florida. New Secretary of the Department of Children and Families George Sheldon said DCF needs to focus its efforts on teaching prevention.

“While we need to focus and protect children and victims of domestic violence, we also need to get back up front and figure out why that’s happening in the first place. We have got to bring all the resources of this department to bare on domestic violence and child abuse.”

October 1st, marks the start of domestic violence awareness month.
