Peace with Purple Vigil

As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Quad Counties Council - New Horizons Outreach along with The Maverick County Coalition against Domestic Violence is hosting its 2nd annual Candlelight Vigil in memory of those women who have lost their lives in the state of Texas and in our own community. We will be releasing balloons for every victim lost in the year 2015, awarding those local agencies who help out survivors, and ending with a candlelight ceremony.

There's No Excuse For Abuse

On Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 9 a.m., the Orange County Domestic Violence Task Force will hold its annual awareness event and walk in Harbor Park (located in the lakefront area of Baldwin Park at the end of New Broad Street). Our theme is "There's No Excuse for Abuse."

The purpose of the event is to share resources to assist in eliminating abuse in our community. It is also a time where we remember and honor those who have lost their lives as victims of domestic violence.

Task force partners will have tents and tables present at the event. Music will be provided by a DJ.
