Domestic violence is, in many ways, a quiet epidemic. However, in plain sight, victims are often invisible, fearfully denying their situation and hiding behind the facade of a happy home. But the statistics reveal a shocking reality. Every nine seconds, a woman in America is assaulted or beaten, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. A mind-boggling one in three women and one in four men has been a victim of physical brutality by an intimate partner. This makes intimate partner violence "the single greatest cause of injury to women," per the Domestic Violence Intervention Program. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship male or female, please seek help immediately. You can call the 24-hour National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).


October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and Rehoboth is committed to the cause.  Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer. The good news is most women can survive breast cancer if it is found and treated early enough. If you are over 40, uninsured or underinsured PLEASE call 404-265-3828 to schedule a FREE mammogram through March 2018.  Finally, we will worship in PINK on Sunday, October 22, 2016 in support of this worthy cause.
