However, for too many children,

violence permeates their homes.

  • 1 in 4 women will be physically or sexually abused by a partner in her lifetime.
  • Children are involved in 80% of domestic violence incidents.
  • Children are frequently assaulted when they intervene to defend or protect their mothers.
  • Children who witness domestic violence are 6 times more likely to commit suicide.
  • A child’s exposure to domestic abuse is the strongest risk factor for passing violent behavior from one generation to the next.


We can’t solve all the world’s problems.

But YOU can make a difference here.

Give the gift of hope & safety.

Please give generously to JBWS.
