Walk for Hope
Participate in Walk for Hope that takes place each fall.
Fellow survivors, families and friends, and professionals dine together on select Sundays throughout the year.
With collaboration and support from local law enforcement, therapists, and certified self defense trainers, learn best practices to defend yourself from physical and verbal attacks.

National Suicide Prevention Week
One in four survivors of domestic violence will attempt suicide. With nearly 125 suicides that occur each day, it is one of the top ten leading causes of death in the United States.
9/9 - 9/15 Share Your Message. Share Your Support.
Throughout the week so many of you showed your support for suicide awareness and suicide prevention by posting a photo holding one or more of our positive-message signs, and connecting with us on social media.
9/10 World Suicide Prevention Day
In collaboration with our friends and colleagues at Foundation for a Better Tomorrow, we encouraged the community to participate in raising awareness by lighting a candle in remembrance of a loved one lost to suicide.
9/11 Wear Yellow for Suicide Awareness
Yellow is the official color for suicide awareness. Members of the community donned this hopeful color in an effort to bring attention to such an important cause.
This date was also a day of mourning for our nation. We wore the color yellow in remembrance of those brave lives lost on (and after) September 11, 2001.
