"If Safe Harbor’s 2019 were to be summed up in one word, it would be community. The issue of domestic violence (once considered private and secret) is finally weaving its way into our collective consciousness. Unfortunately, in 2019, we learned the disappointing news that South Carolina now ranks number 5 in the nation for deaths of women by men - up from number 6 in 2018. And while we don’t yet have the answers to how to end domestic violence, the promising news is that we are beginning to have conversations about the complexity of it and how it not only impacts a single person or family, but also impacts our entire community’s safety and quality of life."
