Domestic Violence (Finances/Holidays)

It is difficult to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa when domestic violence is on the rise.  Many states report their abuse shelters are filled to capacity during this time of the year.  Financial abuse is the primary reason victim remain in and/or return to an abusive situation.  These are intentional behaviors by the abuser to harm the victim.  Financial education services and Domestic Violence Victim Advocates are available through ACS to help empower survivors.  Please call an advocate at 912 767-3032 for more information.
