October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!

We wanted to further explore the effects of domestic violence during the COVID 19 pandemic from a Religious, Law Enforcement, and Clinical perspective.

For this live zoom presentation, we will be joined by Pastor Rocky Stone, Sandals Church, Menifee, Lieutenant Denise Keith, Menifee Police Department, Lieutenant Kevin Lamb, Moreno Valley Police Department, and Jeff L. Hartwig, MA PPS LPCC Clinical Counselor for Alternatives to Domestic Violence.

That, to me is an inspiring feeling.”
