Tri-County Community Action Agency, Inc. is proud to have a presence at the Halifax County Fair this year.
We felt it was necessary to be where the people would be and bring awareness, offer help and resources to the community. We set up our display and the community and it's citizens stopped by and picked up pamphlets, brochures and asked a lot of questions regarding Sexual Violence.
We made people aware that they don't have to suffer in silence! Our 24 hour HOTLINE is available to all that would need it. Call: 434.572.1136 today if you have questions or an emergency. You don't have to suffer in silence!
According to the CDC, in a recent national survey, 1 in 10 teens reported being hit or physically hurt on purpose by a dating partner at least once in the 12 months before the survey.
Additionally, during the 12 months before the survey, 1 in 10 teens reported they had been kissed, touched, or physically forced to have sexual intercourse when they did not want to at least once by someone they were dating.
Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness and protect teens from violence. During the month of February, the Domestic Violence Program visited Halifax High School to talk to students about Healthy Relationships and Bullying.
Pictured is 10th grade student Destiny Hall from Cluster Springs who won the raffle after taking the Healthy Relationships Quiz. Also pictured is staff talking to students during their lunch break and student Miss Jackson visiting the table.
