ALBANY, GA (WALB) - October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Projects against violent encounters in relationships are happening nation wide, and here in south Georgia.

The Liberty House helped 89 women last year.

There is good news, Georgia has improved from 7th to 14th in the nation for the rate at which men kill women in single-victim homicides.
