Harnett County takes a stand against domestic violence

In an address made by the Harnett County Clerk of Court Martha Johnson, she revealed that SAFE catered to 906 crisis calls in the year 2015, a 13% increase from 2014. Johnson made the speech to attendees of the benefit concert and candlelight vigil for Lillington, North Carolina-based domestic violence and sexual assault advocacy group SAFE of Harnett County.

Also in 2015, SAFE personally helped 424 individuals, 90% of whom were women between the ages of 26 and 60. Around 45 adults and 39 children were rescued and taken to safe houses by the organization, marking a 21% increase from the year before. Families stayed an average of six weeks in SAFE’s safe houses.
