Why a Women’s Coalition?
- Each year thousands of women, children and men are victims of violence
- 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys will be a victim of sexual assault before the age of 18
- Each year approximately 500 women will obtain Temporary Restraining Orders on St. Croix to protect themselves
- We provide a listening ear and ray of hope 24 hours a day…our services are available to all victims regardless of gender, race, or age
- All our lives will be better and our world much improved if we can end violence in our homes and community.
