Community awareness program launched
October 23, 2009
In May and June 2006 the Jennifer Beach Foundation assembled a group of 13 volunteers to partner with the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force in a community awareness project where information packets were presented to one hundred and fifty one businesses in the city of Covington. The packets included information on the meaning of domestic violence and child abuse and neglect as well as actual incident statistics provided by local law enforcement and a listing of local resources for those in need. Articles to help employers faced with domestic violence in the work place were included. Each business was asked to display a laminated 8.5″ x 11″ Domestic Violence Has No Place In Our Community placard. The placard contained the Crisis Line telephone number for the Domestic Abuse Women’s Network (DAWN).
