Domestic Violence Awareness
Every 44 minutes in Arizona, one or more children witness domestic violence. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, please join us in helping to make domestic violence zero in the region.
About 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 10 men have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime and reported at least one impact of the violence (like being concerned for their safety).
Over 43 million women and about 38 million men experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

In Danger and Can't Call 9-1-1? Try Texting
If you are in danger and can’t make a voice call to 9-1-1, one lifesaving option might be to text instead. If you live in Maricopa County, simply type 911 into the “to” field of your text message. Be prepared to give your address, as responders won’t be able to see your location as they would through a voice call. That’s one reason we say, “Call if you can. Text if you cant.” This technology will soon be available in other counties in Arizona as well. You are NOT alone!
