Nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.

During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

This is according to the National Council Against Domestic Violence.

A local agency hopes to help the survivors of domestic violence and you can take part.

Next week Hope’s Voice of Knox and Daviess County will hold a “Virtual Volunteer Advocate Academy”.

It aims to educate potential volunteers on what it would be like working with the agency.

If you’re interested in volunteering, you can call Cathy Bush at 812-886-4470.
