Corn Place helped raise awareness and showed support for victims of domestic violence in our community by turning the lights purple.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month starts October 1st.  Domestic violence occurs in every community, and it can only be addressed when everyone is involved. October is our month to take action and to stand up to domestic violence!!  
Mitchell Area Safehouse and the Davison County Stand Up & Smile
4-H Group we would like to thank the health care community for all the valuable work they do each and every day!! Health Cares About Domestic Violence (HCADV) Day it is a nationally-recognized day to raise awareness about the critical role of health care and domestic violence/sexual assault (DV/SA) agencies to promote survivor health and safety outcomes.
