Thomasville, Georgia-- Halcyon Home, a refuge for battered women and children inThomasville, is creating exposure for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
It held a ceremony Friday morning at the Thomas County Courthouse. Employees of the home, law enforcement, and victims all urged people to get involved in the fight against domestic violence.
Halcyon's spokeswoman says that's so important because it's the only way to protect the smallest victims. "The effects that it has on the kids is what makes domestic violence so horrible. It breaks them down. It doesn't have a strong foundation for them," says Omesha Moore.
October is domestic violence month. On the 20th, a candlelight vigil and silent walk will be held at the Big Oak in Thomasville. Also, Halcyon Home will host several presentations throughout the month.
