Topic … When Love Hurts: Taking the First Step to Escape Domestic Violence

Preview … 
Yellow Brick House is more than an emergency shelter for abused women and children. It empowers women and children to rebuild their lives. It gives a voice to the untold stories of violence in our community. It raises awareness about the need for change and works to move our community forward to end violence against women and children.  

Our speaker will share an overview of Yellow Brick House’s services and supports. She will highlight the impact of abuse and violence. Also, she will share ways our community can help the women and children the Yellow Brick House serves.
