Coastal Bend Family Worship Center: Spreading Awareness and Making a Difference
Welcome to Coastal Bend Family Worship Center, a dedicated community organization committed to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals and families. As part of our continuous efforts, we actively participate in raising awareness of domestic violence during the month of October, which is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence refers to abusive behavior, whether physical, emotional, or psychological, exerted within personal relationships. It affects individuals of all genders, ages, backgrounds, and communities, cutting across all socio-economic statuses.
Creating an Open Dialogue
At Coastal Bend Family Worship Center, we firmly believe that promoting open dialogue and educating our community members about domestic violence is key to its prevention. Throughout October, we facilitate engaging events and activities that provide a safe space for survivors, advocates, and community members to come together, share experiences, and learn from one another.
Events and Activities
During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we organize numerous events and activities to help foster a better understanding of the issue and ultimately empower individuals to take action against domestic violence.
Raising Voices: Panel Discussions
Our panel discussions bring together experts, survivors, and community members to discuss various aspects related to domestic violence. With topics ranging from recognizing signs of abuse to providing ongoing support, these discussions provide valuable insights and resources for those impacted by domestic violence.
Healing and Reflection: Support Groups
We offer safe and supportive spaces through our support groups, allowing survivors to share their stories, find solace, and connect with others who have experienced similar situations. These groups are facilitated by trained professionals who provide emotional support and guidance to those in need.
Silent No More: Awareness Walk
Our annual Silent No More Awareness Walk serves as a powerful demonstration of unity against domestic violence. It brings individuals and families together to march through our city streets, raising awareness and emphasizing the need for change. Through this walk, we aim to give a voice to survivors and inspire our community to take action.
Educating and Empowering: Workshops
Our workshops provide practical knowledge and skills that empower individuals to recognize and respond to domestic violence. From self-defense classes to financial literacy workshops, these events equip participants with tools to protect themselves and uplift others.
