Vigil held for domestic violence victims

October 21, 2004

Thomasville - Thursday night, a vigil will be held to remember those victims and to recognize survivors of domestic violence. The Halcyon Home of Thomasville is hosting the candlelight vigil at the Big Oak starting at 6:30PM.

Stacy Shrapshire says, "Shelters in general, they've saved a lot of lives, because it does get them out of that situation and helps them to move on with their life."

Since the Halcyon Home opened in 1997, more than 1300 people have been sheltered there. October is domestic violence awareness month.
