INVESTING IN SAFETY, HOPE, HEALING, JUSTICE, AND PREVENTION

1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in our community will be impacted by domestic violence. As the sole provider of services for the victims and survivors in our community, we know these numbers to be tragically accurate. In 2019, we served over 3,500 women and children seeking help across Denton County and had an average of 250 brand new clients walk through our doors every month. While it is heartbreaking to know that there are so many in our community that are suffering at the hands of someone that they should love and trust, we know that these high numbers are actually a good thing. It means that our neighbors and friends know where to go for help, and are asking for help when it is needed. For too long there has been a culture of silence and shame around family violence and sexual violence. That is no longer how our community views these crimes, and we have our partnership with community leaders to thank for it.

From local politicians, to Denton County police forces, to business leaders alike, we are proud to be able to form partnerships and promote a culture of empathy and awareness. Not only for the sake of bringing in more funds for our agency, but for having others in the community help us shine a light on how far we have come, and how much we have gained to help the people in our community who need us. As the saying goes, it takes a village. Becoming an Annual Partner with DCFOF is one way to take a stand against violence, and to say: "You are not alone".
