October Declared Domestic Violence Awareness MonthOct 15th, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Front Page
Moments after Mayor Rayne Cooks approved the resolution recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Debra McGrew, Executive Director of Refuge House, addressed the City Commission about its importance. “We honor those who survive and remember those who didn’t,” she said, adding that Refuge House had always had a good relationship with the sheriff, police department and Clerk of Courts in Madison as well as from the college. Additionally, she reported that her organization had hired a new coordinator for their Sexual Assault Response Team in Madison, a place she felt had always been strongly supportive of Refuge House. “Thank you, commissioners,” she said.
