We understand the importance of including the voices of marginalized populations in all of the work that we do, and applaud the work of this group during Pride Month! The Combahee River Collective famously developed the Combahee River Collective Statement, a document that acknowledged that both the feminist movement and the Civil Rights Movement were not addressing the particular needs of Black women and, more specifically, of Black lesbians.

Feel good story of the week! This amazing and kind-hearted young lady wanted to do something to help our shelter residents. So, what does a 13-year old philanthropist do? She writes a letter to everyone in her neighborhood! It described the agency and asked for donations of items from our Shelter Wish List. She even included instructions for porch pickup! Sending a big, heartfelt THANK YOU to Harper, her Gigi, and everyone who contributed to this special project! #domesticviolence_ilm #vintagevalues_wilm

At DVSS, we understand the importance of shining a light on the reality of living with a mental illness. We know that individuals who experience domestic violence are at increased risk for all types of mental health related issues. So as we wrap up this very important awareness month, we at DVSS commit to making sure all of the people we serve are connected to the appropriate mental health services and support.

What Is Domestic Violence? - Community Education - BTSADV

"What comes to mind when you hear the words "domestic violence"? Many people visualize images of women with black eyes and bloody noses with a boyfriend/husband as the perpetrator. However, this stereotype is not always a reality. Domestic violence can occur in any type of relationship regardless of age, sexual orientation, or economic status."

What is domestic violence? Who does it affect? And how can we help break the cycle of abuse? Build awareness to the situations and types.

On the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (#IDAHOBIT2021), NNEDV reaffirms that LGBTQ+ survivors of domestic violence deserve safety, respect, and resources that honor their identities and experiences. Learn more in this piece from our archives: https://bit.ly/2wLC1Oz
