Authorities from Faith House were in Gueydan last week to promote National Domestic Violence Month.
Faith House is a non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence and their children.
Domestic Violence does effect women of all educational, social and economic levels, all ages, all religions and all ethnic groups.
It is the single most frequent cause of injury to women in this country. October is Domestic Violence awareness month.
Faith House started a “thank-you” campaign to show appreciation to those that help the facility throughout the year. “Kisses for Cops” is made on behalf of the children, where we present the department with a bowl of Hershey’s kisses. The children made cards for the officers to thank them for saving their mom and keeping them safe from their abusive dad.
This month we would like to bring awareness to the community to let people know that there is help out there. No one deserves to be abused. All of our services are confidential and free of charge.
To learn more about our services or ways you can help Faith House please call 337-893-3033 for more information.
