October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is a sad truth that the US Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect estimates that approximately 1,500 infants and young children die from maltreatment each year and approximately 70,000 reported cases of child abuse are reported in San Diego County annually.
Home Start works tirelessly to help families identify and use their strengths to build better futures for themselves through the array of programs and services that they offer. Home Start is committed to a community-based collaborative effort to reach children and families at risk and prevent child abuse and neglect.
We are happy to announce that we are joining the cause and will have one of our Artist’s, Devon Browning, performing a live painting at the Home Start Hallo-Wine Festival. Help the cause and join us on October 10th. This event supports Home Start’s programs to strengthen families and protect children in San Diego. Not only will you be able to enjoy the live painting, but also an afternoon of boutique wines, handcrafted beers, specialty spirits, and gourmet hors d’oeurvres at an exclusive private estate near Balboa Park.
We look forward to seeing you there!
