October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it's also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It's extremely important to take this time and spread the awareness for this issue. That's why we have HOPE, a nonprofit organization that offers support for people suffering from domestic violence.
"It doesn't hurt to call. You don't have to tell us your name. It can be totally anonymous. We also get lots of calls from family that like to get information for other family members who are in those situations," said Jackie Ritter, Legal Advocate and Case Manager for HOPE as well as the Harrison County Supervisor.
Right now they're accepting cell phone donations at the Clarksburg Beauty Academy, so they can give their patients a way to call for help if it's needed.
The color purple is used to honor those who have died as a result of domestic violence, to celebrate those who have survived, and to recognize those who work to end violence in our community.
