YWCA’s 24 hour hotline IS 1-800-540-4764
Clermont County Commissioners joined advocates across the country in demonstrating an active role to prevent sexual violence by designating the month of April 2013 to be “Sexual Assault Awareness Month” in Clermont County, Ohio. During their session yesterday, the President of the Board, Ed Humphrey, presented a Proclamation to YWCA of Greater Cincinnati Eastern Area representatives.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is intended to draw attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every community member of Clermont County and nationwide.
Humphrey said, “With leadership, dedication, and encouragement, there is evidence that we can be successful in preventing sexual violence in Clermont County through increased education, awareness, and community involvement.”
The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati Eastern Area provides a range of services for sexual assault survivors in Clermont County, including court advocacy and emergency shelter. For more information and assistance, call the YWCA’s 24 hour hotline at 1-800-540-4764.
