One in three women worldwide (and one in four men) will be the victim of intimate partner violence in their lifetime. In America, someone is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds. Arlington County residents are not immune to these issues. Today we’re hosting Samantha Clarke and Christina Cole from Doorways for Women and Families, an Arlington-based non-profit that has provided a pathway out of violence and homelessness to thousands of our neighbors over the past 40 years. Sam and Christy join us to talk about the services Doorways provide on behalf of Arlington County, and the impact the program has had on both its clients and volunteers.
Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are our neighbors.
Success working with victims takes time and a respect for each person's journey and choices.
The rewards of serving with Doorways.
