Operation Care: The #1 Thing...

 


A Message from
Our Executive Director

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and now more than ever the services we provide are essential. During the past several months, there have been many obstacles to overcome due to COVID19. As an agency, we have done our best to continue providing services to our community.

We are in unprecedented times and 2020 has tested our resiliency, individually and as a community. We have been faced with situations and dilemmas that allowed us to utilize every resource available locally, statewide and even nationwide. Our goal is to provide a safe place for clients to heal from abuse.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, encourage them to get help. Provide them with the resources they need to safely leave their abusive relationship.

Operation Care advocates can help create a safety plan, file orders of protection and provide a safe, undisclosed location for a victim to begin the healing process.

We are not mandated reporters for domestic violence. All services we provide are voluntary, confidential, free of charge and available for men, women and children. We are available 24/7 by calling our crisis line at 209-223-2600.

Every person has a right to live a peaceful life free of violence.

#1thing:
Awareness + Action =Social Change

Sincerely,
Tammie Crabtree
Executive Director



October is
Domestic Violence
Awareness Month
#1Thing Can Make
All the Difference


Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be
prevented. It requires the collective voice and power of individuals, families, institutions, and systems – each whose “one thing” adds a valuable and powerful component to transforming our communities.

 “What is the #1Thing you can do to end domestic violence?”

  • Be a caring and consistent adult in the life of a child
  • Talk to loved ones about violence and oppression
  • Create a culture of consent in your home
  • Use social media to raise awareness among your peers
  • Reach out to your local domestic violence program to learn how you can help
  • Listen to and validate a survivor of trauma
  • Take the #1Thing Community Pledge to end domestic violence: http://ow.ly/fbGT30lYERO (link doesn’t work need to save on Op Care)
  • See more ideas at http://ow.ly/FDXR30lYEFg

This October join Operation Care as we mourn for those whose lives were taken by domestic violence, celebrate the tremendous progress victim advocates have made over the years, and connect with one another with a true sense of unity to end domestic violence.

#1Thing unites our individual voices
while highlighting the power of our collective action.
