"It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement and remembering." -- Judy Herman

Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Statistics

      1 out of 4 Women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.


      1 in 6 Women and 1 in 33 Men have experienced an attempted rape or completed rape in their lifetime.


      85% of all domestic violence victims are female.


      Nearly 1 in 5 Teens report that their boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm when presented with the breakup of the relationship. 


      More than 9 times as many women were murdered by a man they knew (1,587 victims) than were killed by someone they did not know (168).


Please remember to give to the United Way!  New Horizons is an agency that receives funds from the United Way.  Without the community giving to New Horizons and United Way, we would not be able to help as many victims of domestic violence.
