Domestic violence is all too often difficult to address or even talk about. An upcoming program may help victims and those who know them find help.
The Spring Hill Police Department is hosting a domestic violence awareness class March 25 at 6 p.m. in the reception room of the Spring Hill Civic Center.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend this free event, which will be taught by a representative from SAFEHOME, which offers shelter and community services to victims of domestic violence.
SAFEHOME serves the Kansas City metro area with emphasis in Johnson and Miami Counties. Its services include shelter, advocacy, legal services, and a 24-hour crisis hotline. More information on SAFEHOME is available at www.safehome-ks.org.
The program will include information on what to do if you or someone you know is being abused and will offer helpful resources for attendees.
