A Message from CCSS Marketing and Communications Director Jay Capron….
Thank you for helping us save lives. Many people who escape domestic violence are not reported in local news – spared tragedy because they called CCSS. Some survivors don’t realize how much danger they are in until they arrive at our doors, speak to our counselors, and share their and other residents’ experiences.
Each individual and family journey is unique; however, the cycle of violence is all-too predictable. Tension building. Crisis. Calm, honeymoon phase. Tension building. Crisis. Calm, honeymoon phase. The crises escalate as the cycle continues, sometimes to the point of serious injury or death.
I am proud and energized to be part of CCSS because we intervene in crises and are at the forefront of awareness, education, and prevention. I feel privileged to share our stories, maintain and improve CCSS’s outstanding reputation, engage with donors and volunteers, and change public perceptions about domestic and dating violence. Thank you for your support!
