October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Altabank recognizes domestic violence awareness and prevention as one of our core public issues.

In this episode of Altabanking, Stan sits down with Jill Anderson from CAPSA, Jillian Penhale from the DOVE Center, Ashlee Taylor from The Refuge, Lindsey Boyer from South Valley Services, and Carol Earnshaw, a survivor of domestic abuse. 

One in 3 Utah women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime which means, someone you know is either experiencing or deals with domestic violence. Our panelists discuss the efforts being made to raise awareness, provide support, and help survivors, emphasizing the importance of recognizing different forms of domestic abuse and how to support victims.

The role of family, friends, and employers in assisting survivors is vital in so many cases to a survivor getting the help they need. Survivors so often leave their homes with nothing to their name and need the support of these great organizations to find housing, make a safety plan, and take the steps needed to move forward.  

If you or someone you know is experiencing some form of domestic violence, please call the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition Hotline at 800-799-7233.
