Love shouldn't hurt
With February being the month that we celebrate love, Annie Jones, Social Worker and Special Initiatives Manager at the Union County Library System, wants to remind us that love isn’t supposed to hurt. In her monthly Making Connections column in the library’s online newsletter, she spotlights Safe Homes. Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical, emotional, financial, mental, and sexual. You can find out more about these forms of abuse at the National Domestic Violence Hotline’s website at thehotline.org.
In Union County, Safe Homes serves residents who have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence from an intimate partner. They provide housing and legal advocacy, counseling, and shelter for those in immediate danger. To learn more, visit their website at www.shrcc.org, call 864-583-9803, or visit their office in Union at the Carnegie Library and speak to the local Safe Homes advocate, Holly Cape.
