October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month, each October, is an annual national spotlight on the issue of domestic violence and the programs which support survivors and loved ones.  Since 2014, RESTORE has hosted a county wide “DVAM" campaign to raise awareness about how domestic violence impacts the communities we service, and the places folks can turn to for help.  RESTORE engages with a variety of audiences throughout the month via social media, flag displays of statistics and special events.  In February of 2015, RESTORE launched the Domestic Violence Project in Wyoming County in partnership with the Department of Social Services which allows RESTORE to provide direct support to those impacted by domestic violence in Wyoming County.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month 

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an annual national spotlight on the issue of sexual violence and programs which support survivors and loved ones. RESTORE since 2014 has hosted a region-wide ‘SAAM’ campaign to raise awareness about how sexual violence impacts the communities we serve, and the places folks can turn to for help. Using multiple different components, RESTORE engages with a variety of audiences throughout the month via social media, displays of statistics, special events, and boxes to collect words of support for survivors.  RESTORE uses direction from the national ‘SAAM’ campaign out of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center as well as in-house ideas and events.
