Santa Ana Team Raises Awareness of Domestic Violence on Make a Difference Day

December 1, 2014 webteam Mentee Spotlight: South Kern

The Santa Ana team of the Building Healthy Communities AmeriCorps Program raised awareness of domestic violence in their community during a Community Fair held at the Santa Ana Boys & Girls Club on Make a Difference Day, October 25. The purpose of the project was to identify the many ways domestic violence can be perpetrated on a victim – physical, mental, emotional, economic – and provide resources for residents and potential victims to prevent, report, and recover from violent incidents. The Boys & Girls Club, Human Options, the Santa Ana College of Continuing Education, and over 90 youth and adult volunteers collaborated with the Santa Ana team to stage the event.
