Since 2009, the Florida Resource Center for Women and Children has provided more than 4,000 nights of safe shelter for over 200 victims of domestic violence and their children.
FRCWC exists to restore peace to violent families. We offer the support and caring that is needed to assist those who have been hurt, both physically and emotionally. If you need us, we’re here for you. Contact FRCWC today.
Although 60% of Americans ages 15-and-older know a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault and 80% believe it is a problem in our society, limited public discussions are taking place about the issues.
Women and men play an important role in recognizing the signs of abuse among their friends and family and starting conversations about the issue to break the cycle. The Avon Foundation for Women, with the participation of domestic violence organizations around the country, including FRCWC, launched #See the Signs, a social media campaign to educate bystanders and victims on the signs of domestic violence and how to safely intervene or seek help. Check out the gallery and start a conversation.
Eighty-two percent (82%) of Americans say that they would do something to help reduce domestic violence if they knew what to do.
Stronger anti-violence laws and training for police and court personnel strengthen the criminal justice system’s response to domestic violence. Community programs, shelters and education programs for youth, local businesses and professionals protect survivors from future victimization and prevent the continuation of the cycle of violence from generation to generation.
