Thank you for joining us for our annual Strike Out Against Domestic Violence Event! We are excited to offer this opportunity to raise awareness about domestic violence, as well as, funding for the Union Rescue Mission: Dorcas House.
Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we wanted to get a head start on raising awareness. Did you know that Arkansas ranks in the top 3 states for domestic homicides? What about that 1 in every 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? Females from age 20-24 are at the greatest risk of nonfatal violence. Domestic violence is one of the most chronically under reported crimes.
The Dorcas House provides a safe environment for women and children to be able to heal. When the Dorcas House first opened her doors in 1963 it was for homeless women. Soon afterwards, we began to serve women and children that were victims of domestic violence. The Dorcas House is a Christian based 9 month long residential program. We seek to help break the cycles of domestic violence, rather than just be a “band aid”. We have a 63-bed residential program for women and children.
Thank you for your willingness to support the Dorcas House in our efforts to help these worthy women and children. For more information on programming and services that the Union Rescue Mission offers, please visit our website at www.urmission.org.
