Why We Do What We Do
Every day last year 176 victims sought family violence services.
Survivors were offered 1,500,469 services by family violence centers.
Solely due to lack of space, 43.7% of survivors were denied shelter.
*Texas Family Violence Statics (2020)
Research has consistently shown that only 10-25% of survivors of family violence will ever access services.*
