Educating Seniors About Domestic Violence

Educating Seniors About Domestic Violence

Domestic violence affects victims of all ages. During National Domestic Violence Awareness month in October, NYCHA’s Community Engagement and Partnerships department held four breakfast events to raise awareness about domestic violence and how it affects seniors.

On October 27, 2017, about 150 seniors attended the Brooklyn Senior Domestic Violence Awareness Program. Representatives from the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, and the Urban Justice Center, gave presentations or were in attendance. Seniors performed skits and read poetry about domestic violence situations, the senior choir sang, and NYCHA social workers provided referrals to social services.

Held in Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn, the breakfasts reached 600 seniors with information on available city resources.
