Mayor Allen Brown signed a proclamation last week declaring the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The proclamation reads, in part: “Domestic violence impacts women, men, and children of every age, background, and belief; and, nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in the United States have suffered severe physical violence by an intimate partner; and, victims are deprived of their autonomy, liberty, and security, and face tremendous threats to their health and safety; and, Army Community Services, Helen’s Haven, Tri-County Shelter, the Department of Family and Children Services, and the Homeless Intervention Program along with other dedicated agencies are committed to providing a wide range of programs and services to helping Soldiers and their Families; and, we are dedicated to work with our community partners to assist with the prevention of domestic violence until every individual is able to live free from fear of abuse; and, we hereby call upon everyone in Liberty County and the Marne Community to do their part to make Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield safe for all and be supportive of victims of domestic violence."
