There is an epidemic of domestic and sexual violence throughout our culture. In Merrimack County alone, 1 out of 2 women will experience domestic or sexual violence in her lifetime. Faith Communities are often the first place domestic and sexual violence victims turn for support.
On Sunday we are joining many other faith communities within Merrimack County to talk about these issues and how we might offer a safe place for those suffering this abuse to step forward for the referrals and support they need to move forward toward a path of healing.
We are being supported in this effort by the Crisis Center of Central NH (cccnh.org). Their 24/7 crisis line is 1-866-841-6229.
