1 in 15 Children Are Exposed to Domestic Violence Each Year
Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.
This week, we are joined by members of The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse (CPCA), including their friendly service dog Peace. 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence. October is both Bully Prevention and Domestic Violence Month. Each year, the CPCA serves approximately 15,000 children, adults, and families through prevention programming, educational training, and support services—all focused on ending the cycle of child abuse.
We discuss the CPCA’s programs to assist victims of abuse, their efforts to prevent abuse, and upcoming events such as their Battle of the Badges Run on Saturday, October 21st!
We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between CPCA and myself here on In Touch.
This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.
