Please join the Village President and the Village Board of Trustees in recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

One in four women and one in seven men will experience domestic violence sometime in their lifetime. In Illinois alone, there are approximately 115,000 – 125,000 domestic crimes each year. The Village joins Sarah's Inn in its efforts to raise awareness about the issues related to domestic violence and the effects on families and communities, and to urge all community members to learn how to take action this month by partnering with Sarah’s Inn.

Sarah’s Inn is a local domestic violence agency that serves over 10,000 individuals annually through its mission to improve the lives of those affected by domestic violence and to break the cycle of domestic violence for future generations. All are invited to join Sarah’s Inn for the 3rd Annual Walk for Awareness on Sunday, October 15th at 1:30PM, starting in Keystone Park.
