HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Crisis Services of North Alabama is supporting a number of events.
The goal is to help people recognize domestic violence, talk about it, and get help for it - while also empowering survivors and remembering those who have lost their lives to it.
If you are in need of help, please call the 24/7 HELPline at 256-716-1000.
If you'd like to help, Crisis Services of North Alabama is always in need of volunteers. More information can be found at csna.org
