SOUTH VALLEY ADVOCATES “Drive Out” Domestic Violence Written By Robin Shepherd October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month Domestic violence causes physical, psychological and emotional trauma. Its scars last a lifetime. When we fail to recognize and address domestic violence, it can destroy families and even end in death. In South County we are fortunate to have Community Solutions focused on this challenge and partnering with other organizations to provide an effective response. To eradicate domestic violence, we need to get out in front of it by increasing community awareness and teaching prevention in our homes, schools and workplaces. This fall, Community Solutions teamed up with Honda of Morgan Hill to help make this happen. 84 GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2018
