Description

Domestic violence in families isn’t always obvious and abuse can be subtle...but statistics show 1 in 4 women and one in 10 men have experienced it.

A recent case of familicide in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood is a horrific example of how badly things can go.

But there is help and in a minute we’re going to hear from Doris O’Neal.

She’s the director of gender-based violence specialized services at the YWCA of King and Snohomish County.

If you or someone you know is in a domestic violence situation, here are some resources. 

The national domestic violence hotline: 1-800-799-7233

Domestic Violence Hopeline: 206-737-0242

King & Snohomish County YWCA: 877.757.8297 or ywcaworks.org
