SPREADING AWARENESS ONE NEWSLETTER AT A TIME
To AWP's Supporters,
Often times while A Woman's Place staff works on the quarterly newsletter, we try to focus on the positive services that AWP provides for victims and survivors, because let's face it, that is what people like to hear. As many of you read these alarming facts through the newsletter, it can become almost cold and gloomy that individuals are going through these situations and often times you may ask yourself, "Why does this continue to happen in our community?" The purpose of these quarterly newsletters is not only to inform you, the reader, on the great supporters we have in the community and the services we provide, but also to create awareness of the issue of domestic violence. A problem that is happening right in our own community and happening way too often. With these newsletters, we hope that we it inspire you to make a difference and help prevent domestic violence.
