October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Denton County Friends of the Family is encouraging members of our community #TakeAStand against DV. Since 1981, the month of October has been recognized by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to victim advocates across the country.

At Denton County Friends of the Family, we commit ourselves every day to help solve the issues of domestic violence in our community. Last year alone, our agency helped over 4,405 individuals affected by domestic violence by providing over 94,000 services. We are asking you to re-commit yourselves this month to stand with us, join us at any of our numerous virtual events this month, and speak out against DV.
