Did you know that according to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence within their lifetime? Waypoint developed the Gentleman Campaign in an effort to spread awareness about domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, events are held that recognize the men who are true gentlemen and celebrate their direct impact on ending domestic violence.
For over 30 years, Waypoint has provided domestic violence services to the area and, in recent years, expanded to seven counties in Northeastern Iowa: Benton, Black Hawk, Buchanan, Delaware, Dubuque, Jones, and Linn. Waypoint's services are free, confidential, and include emotional support, individual and group counseling, information and community referrals, criminal and legal advocacy, medical advocacy, and a 24/7 resource and support line.
Feel encouraged to join the Gentleman Campaign to help end domestic violence in the community you call home!
