"Faith is such a remarkable young lady whose story of strength and perseverance will no doubt inspire others to break the cycle of domestic violence", District Attorney Mike Ramos said.

Lawmakers and domestic violence advocates have worked together to strengthen legal protections for victims, enhance penalties for offenders, establish Orders of Protection with criminal penalties for violations, obtain funding for domestic violence services and shelters, ensure confidentiality for the safety and dignity of victims, and strengthen child welfare laws to protect abused parents and their children. The DVCC is committed to promoting the fundamental right of all individuals to be safe in their personal relationships.

Leah Bair, who runs the Fort Dodge-based center, says such facilities face economic challenges with state and federal funding cuts, but it's becoming more clear that people consider domestic violence a very serious issue. In 2016 and 2017 the DVCC provided service to 75 households in the Town of Wilton.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office has partnered with several community agencies to better serve victims of domestic violence.

We encourage those in our community to educate themselves about domestic violence, the statistics and the warning signs.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, lack of knowledge and silence on the subject of domestic violence play a huge role in why it persists in our society. DVA month occurs every October and has been running since 1981. Domestic violence happens in intimate settings away from doctors with physical proof and away from friends and family who can show support through treatment visits and patience.

Almost one in three women and one in five men have experienced domestic violence in MA, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For this reason, initiatives such as the NCADV are vital in allowing communities to understand what domestic violence is, as well as its nature in an effort to combat it through the power of knowledge and understanding. "I want to tell them it's okay to speak up and tell someone what they are going through". "The love we have for one another is our drive and each member has a tie to domestic violence, whether they know someone who has experienced it our has experienced it themselves, so it touches close to home", said Quintanilla.
