October Is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

During the month of October we focus on creating a greater level of awareness around the issue of Domestic Violence. However, somewhere in Connecticut, Domestic Violence is a problem that occurs every day. We encourage you to be aware of and alert to the problem at all times.

  • Do whatever you can to help those who are afflicted while trying to stay safe yourself.

A CALL–TO-MEN and OneWorld Progressive Institute provide a short video:

“10 Effective Strategies to END Domestic Violence.” It is a hands-on, sensible and practical approach by three men (and one woman) with suggestions on how to stop Domestic Violence. https://youtu.be/_1QjqODOkcY

  • Domestic Violence is defined as a pattern of coercive, controlling behavior

  • It can be physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse or financial abuse.

  • It is a pervasive, life-threatening crime that affects thousands of individuals in Connecticut and all across America and the world.

  1. Domestic Violence can be carried out by men and women.
  2. More women are the victims of physical and financial abuse by men.
  3. Children also suffer when one parent is being abuse by another adult.
  4. The abuse to children often has long-term consequences.
  5. Don’t sit quietly and suffer or see your children suffer.
  6. If you are being abused, or if you are an abuser, GET HELP!
  • In CT Call 888-774-2900 for HELP or to Talk to Someone.

Please don't regard Domestic Violence as just ' being a part of life.'  It does not have to be that way.  Each of us can help to change it.  "Domestic Violence Accounts for 1 in 3 Murders of Women."

LISC Launches New Office in Upstate South Carolina

This month, LISC opened its newest metro office in Upstate South Carolina. Long-time economic development leader Julie Franklin will bring her community development expertise honed in Greenville and Spartanburg to the role of executive director of the LISC Upstate SC program. The new office will focus on comprehensive, long-term investments in affordable housing, businesses and jobs. “As a whole, the Upstate is enjoying strong growth, but not everyone has been able to participate in our economic expansion,” said Franklin. “To succeed in a globally competitive marketplace, we need to build up our local talent, strengthen our neighborhoods and fuel a broadly shared prosperity that allows everyone to thrive.”
