In the first half of 2016, at least 13 Jefferson County residents lost their lives to domestic violence. That’s more than twice the number killed in the county in all of 2015, and it illustrates the importance of YWCA Central Alabama’s domestic violence prevention efforts.
“We are working every day to save lives,” said Annetta Nunn, community outreach coordinator. “By educating people about the warning signs of domestic violence and how to seek help, we hope to encourage as many victims as possible to escape their abusive relationships before it’s too late.”
