House of Ruth Happenings!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month!

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this month is dedicated to bringing awareness and support to survivors and victims of Intimate Partner Violence. 

  •  According to national statistics 1 in 4 women, 1 in 7 men, and 1 in 3 teens will be victims of domestic violence in their lifetime.
  • Over 10 million people report being abused by their intimate partner every year, making up 15% of violent crimes reported in the U.S.
  •  Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and children in the U.S.


Regrettably domestic violence continues being a major public health crisis and now more than ever we need your help to continue amplifying the voices of victims and survivors needing support and guidance through their healing journey. Last year House of Ruth answered over 1,600 Hotline calls and reached more than 4,000 adults and teens through community prevention education. 

Help us continue making a difference by participating in the following House of Ruth events commemorating Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Don’t forget to invite your family and friends.

  • Candlelight Vigil - October 20, 2022 at 6pm. Location: 599 N. Main St Pomona CA.
