violence program planned Tuesday
The cycle of domestic violence will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree CafÃ©, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The program, "When Love Hurts: Ending the Cycle of Domestic Violence," provides practical strategies for removing those suffering domestic violence from their abusive situations.
Lifetree representative Craig Cable said one in four women experiences domestic abuse. And one in nine men is a victim of abuse, he said. "There are help and hope. Both women and men can survive domestic violence."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree CafÃ© is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Cable at (970) 292-4697 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
