We are teaming up with Genesis Women's Shelter (www.genesisshelter.org) to raise awareness to stop teen abuse and raise money for Genesis. Did you know that 1 in 3 teenage girls are physically assaulted by their boyfriends? Let's #Make1in3Zero!
Teen domestic abuse is a serious matter. The abuse isn't always physical. If a boy that you are dating tries to persuade you to do something you don't want to do and you say no...always remember that NO means NO. Girls in their teens and early twenties are more vulnerable to domestic violence. If you know or are someone who is struggling with domestic violence, please get out of the relationship or help someone else get out of the relationship. If you need to talk to someone, there are chat lines on Love Is Respect, a website that focuses on teen girls dealing with domestic violence http://www.loveisrespect.org/ or visit Genesis website at www.genesisshelter.org.
If you need a safe place, call the Genesis hotline:214-946-HELP (4357)
