Domestic Violence Awareness MonthEvery October is a National Month educating and raising awareness of domestic violence which affects millions of individuals of every race, religion, culture and status.
Throughout October, learn how to identify what domestic abuse looks like, obstacles many women and families face, especially during COVID-19 and how to find true hope and healing. We will also highlight the long term effects of domestic violence and identify the lies that can often feel like the truth in the midst of the trauma.
Have you personally lived through the hurt and hopelessness that can come from domestic violence? Do you know someone who has?
Chances are, you do…. 1 in 3 women reports having experienced some form of domestic violence (NCADV). Learn how you can find healing or help the one woman out of three in your life who has been impacted.
Journey with us throughout October as we seek to bring awareness, education, and healing and restoration for women and families who have been affected by domestic violence during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Throughout the month please consider how you can partner with CTPM to care for the 1 woman out of 3 in your life!
Help us reach our NEEDED fundraising goal of $40,000 this month to continue to meet the increasing need from women and families who reach out to us for help during the Covid19 season.
A generous donor has supplied us with a $15,000 MATCHING GRANT so every dollar given will be doubled.

One in three women have been impacted by domestic violence at some point in their lives. That means it has or is happening in your church! Join with Called to Peace Ministries as we recognize National Domestic Violence Awareness Month throughout the month of October. All month we will focus our attention on educating and creating awareness surrounding the challenges that women and families experience who are trapped in domestic violence.
Are you ready to face this problem when it happens in your church? Does your congregation have a safe place to share if abuse is happening in their marriage?
