Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, gender, race, religion, or nationality.

National data suggests that anywhere from 22-25% of all women will experience domestic violence at some point during their lives.

In the year 2014 there were 106,882 crimes of domestic violence reported to Florida law enforcement agencies resulting in 64,460 arrests.

Domestic violence directly impacts family stability and destroys the home.
