A survey of Potter Community leaders identified 5 risk factors that can lead to domestic violence and prevent victims from leaving their abusers.
1. Lack of basic life skills (for example, money management, cooking, cleaning, basic child care) 2. Lack of public transportation 3. Lack of affordable housing 4. Lack of awareness of services and resources from government and private agencies available to them 5. Lack of mental health services and support
We are interested in hearing ideas from the local community on how we can address each of these obstacles. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.
