#SHINETHELIGHT on Domestic Violence
On average, nearly 20 people per MINUTE are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.
This equates to more than 10 million men and women per year.
It is our mission to bring awareness and give our Active Duty and DOD personnel the courage and tools to recognize the signs of domestic violence, and report it to our Family Advocacy Program.
"Family violence hurts mission radiness, retention, performance, and the overall quality of life for military families. The Family Advocacy Program mission is to prevent, identify, report, intervene and treat all aspects of child abuse, child neglect, and domestic abuse, to include non-married partners in intimate relationships." -Col. Suggs, Commanding Officer of MCAS Yuma.
