23 women have been killed in Orange County by intimate partners since 2004. Yesterday Safe Homes Of Orange County brought together in Newburgh local elected officials and community representatives to begin the observation of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Safe Homes Executive Director Kellyann Kostyal-Larrier says The Clothesline Project is part of the awareness campaign with a visual display on T-shirts of the stories of victims and survivors of domestic violence. The Clothesline Project will be on display in Port Jervis on October 5th in Middletown on October 9th and in Newburgh on October 11th.
One of Safe Homes of Orange County next events is an Escalation Workshop that will be held on Friday in Newburgh. The goal of the workshop is to highlight the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors. For more information call 562-5365, or online at www.safehomesoforangecounty.org.
