According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women and one in seven men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Additionally, on average, 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the US. It is estimated that between 21-60% of victims of domestic violence also experience some form of homelessness. Domestic violence is a serious and pervasive issue in the United States and it is important that we work to provide assistance and resources to those affected by it. By volunteering with organizations that provide assistance to homeless single parents, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by domestic violence.
