Drive a different route to work, grab lunch at a new spot, shop at a different mall or grocery store - just change up your routine! And remember to always be observant and have a safety plan.

How much do you know about domestic violence?

10/01/2020

October – the month we take time highlight the issue of domestic violence. And while Louisiana’s rate of women murdered by men has decreased slightly over the past year, according to a recently released national report, the state still ranks 5th in the nation. The same report also reveals that Louisiana’s rate of women murdered by men remains 77% higher than the national average, at 2.26 homicides per 100,000 females. These numbers are frightening, especially if you are one too many women living in abused households. Couple that with the COVID19 pandemic and families being quarantined in their homes for extended periods of time and you can just imagine the fear that some are living in right now. So be observant – if you see or know of someone struggling and living in fear reach out to them. There are resources available in our community. Help can be reached by contacting the SAVE office, 318-813-7283 or Project Celebration, Inc. (PCI) at 318 226-5015. PCI provides advocacy 24/7 and as well as safe housing.
