On A Single Day, Nearly 10,000 Domestic Violence Victims Couldn’t Get The Help They Needed

Bryce Covert writes for Think Progress: “On a single day last year, domestic violence support programs were unable to meet 9,641 requests for help, from emergency shelter to legal representation, according to the latest census from the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV). ‘This means that over 9,000 times an advocate was forced to tell a courageous caller or person at the door that, unfortunately, there was no bed, counselor, or attorney available to help,’ the report notes.”
