Violence Against Women And Children

Too many stories about family violence recently. 
Austin, Texas- October 2, 2012 – The Texas Council on Family Violence today reports that many shelters across Texas have been over capacity in the last year because of an increased demand for victims of domestic violence seeking services. In the last year, more than 223,000 Texans called domestic violence hotlines and domestic violence programs served more than 80,000 adults and children because they did not feel safe in their home. A recent survey of shelters also reported that there is less money coming in to help victims of domestic violence and more of a demand for their services.
