The community can donate to help victims of domestic violence in Savannah. The Safe Shelter of Savannah is collecting items for women and men transitioning from an abusive partner and home.
An upcoming book will chronicle stories from women who’ve suffered domestic violence. You can share your personal experience in that anthology by contacting Redina Thorpe Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org
According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than half of the women murdered in the U.S. are killed by their intimate partner. The U.S. Health and Human Services published a study revealing the physical abuse comes after the victim has suffered, sometimes years, of mental and emotional abuse.
If you are in an abusive relationship, please don’t wait, get help by calling Savannah Safe Shelter at (912)629-8888 or go to http://safeshelter.org/
You can make a donation to help victims at Union Skidaway Church, 2227 Norwood Avenue, Savannah, Ga 31046 on October 27 and 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
