One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime*

An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year*

85% of domestic violence victims are women*

Historically, females have been most often victimized by someone they knew*

Females who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence*

Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police*

Xavier Solutions has offered their services to educate and train women and children of domestic violence.  This education and training takes place at the safe haven offered by Anna Marie’s.

It is unfortunate to have such violence towards women and children in our world.  It is more sad for so many of these violence acts go unreported and continue because of it.  There are places, like Anna Marie’s who care and shelter the victims who would otherwise be homeless or continual victims.

We are trying to empower these women and children to protect themselves from being victims again.  It is wonderful to never be in one of these situations but it is just as important to have confidence and ability to stop and get away if faced with a violent situation.

If you feel the same as we do, please donate your time and/or resources to a local women’s and children’s shelter for domestic violence.  They all need our help.
