October is domestic violence awareness month.
To raise awareness about domestic violence people across Arizona are encouraged to wear purple on October 15 each year for #AZWearPurpleDay.
Our dedicated team at My Sisters' Place, pictured above, are on the front lines of the battle. My Sisters' Place has been providing shelter for domestic violence survivors and their children for 30 years.
The staff of My Sisters' Place and Pathways, our non-residential domestic violence program, are not alone. Catholic Charities Veteran's Support Councilman Terry Araman and CEO Paul Mulligan wear purple to raise awareness.
