Good morning everyone! Steven here hosting Carrollton Rainbow’s table at the 2nd Annual Purple Ribbon Fall Festival hosted by West Georgia Domestic Violence Shelter.
We at Carrollton Rainbow take the situation of Domestic Violence very seriously. I cannot speak for the rest of the members of the board, but I along with my mother are survivors of Domestic Violence from my biological father, thankfully we made it out alive and we’ve been safe nearing almost 20 years. So this is a personal mission of mine, and I’ll fight to get someone out of a dangerous situation if it is within my power.
If you or anyone you know in the West GA area is experiencing a DV situation please contact 770-834-1141 if you’re elsewhere then please contact the national hotline 800-799-7233
