"Domestic violence is not just a women's issue... it's a family, community, and national issue."
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans.

"Domestic violence is not just a women's issue... it affects the entire family, particularly our children!"
Children who are exposed to domestic violence, especially repeated incidents of violence, are at risk for many difficulties, both immediately and in the future. These include problems with sleeping, eating and other basic bodily functions; depression, aggressiveness; difficulties with family and peer relationships; and problems with attention, concentration and school performance.
