Family Violence Prevention Month
November is Family Violence Prevention Awareness Month in Alberta! This month FCSS and the Fort Family Violence Prevention Coalition are asking all residents to join us in learning more about the supports available to people experiencing abuse and how to recognize the warning signs so that we can end family violence in our community.
Family violence can happen to people of all ages, abilities, sexual orientations, genders and cultural identity. It happens in all communities and Fort Saskatchewan is no exception: so far this year we have seen an average of 11 family violence occurrences for every 1000 people, including 239 children. In Alberta, the statistics are equally distressing. Approximately 1 in 3 people in the province will experience family violence at some point in their lives.
This year we are hosting several events to help raise awareness about family violence in our city and how, you, as a resident, family member, co-worker, parent and friend can support someone who is experiencing violence. To learn more about the events happening this month or for more information on family violence visit: fortsask.ca/FVPM or call FCSS at 780-992-6206.
Together we can raise awareness and take action to create a safer and more supportive community for everyone. It's time to stand up against family violence and work towards a brighter, violence-free future for Fort Saskatchewan.
