YWCA 24-Hour Hotline: (937) 222-SAFE (7233) Quick Escape

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 1-31, 2018

Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, help YWCA Dayton raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence against women and children.

Signature Events:

Special Happenings:

YWCA Dayton’s Preble County Office operates the only domestic violence shelter and the only 24/7 crisis and domestic violence hotline for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and stalking in Preble County. This October, we’re launching a special community project to help raise awareness of the critical services YW provides and show survivors they have our community’s support.
On Monday, Oct. 1, more than 125 people have committed to wearing purple -- which may sound simple, but each of our voices is powerful; together, our message is life-changing for the women and families we serve 24/7/365. Follow along on social media using #PaintPreblePurple. For more information, contact communications@ywcadayton.org.
