DID YOU KNOW?

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), “on average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.” This boils down to at least 10 million women and men victims a year. Furthermore, 1 in 4 women in the U.S. have been victimized by an intimate partner at some point during their lives. And on any given day at least 20,000 phone calls are placed to domestic violence hotlines throughout the country.

The impact on children also cannot be ignored. In Georgia alone, more than 12,000 children are exposed to domestic violence every year, with more than one-third of these children actually witnessing a parent or caretaker being killed.” According to the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, “long term exposure to domestic violence can lead to problems with physical health, behavioral problems and emotional difficulties.”

Moreover, the NCADV reports, victims of domestic abuse have higher rates of depression and suicide than the rest of the population. And family members are often ill-equipped to help their loved ones escape the abuse. However, studies show that domestic violence services have been helpful in getting victims and survivors the help they need. Shelter programs in particular, have been found to be "one of the most supportive, effective resources for women with abusive partners, according to the residents themselves.” Thus, with the number of victims steadily increasing, the need for organizations like Sisters in Charge is greater than ever.
