purpleposterpatrolpin-fbPurple Poster Patrol Event – October 16, 2016

CHOICES offers the only 24-hour crisis and information hotline in Franklin County. We want to make sure anyone in need knows there is a place to call to get advice and support from trained professionals, including safety planning to leave an abuser. That’s where you and your team come in. We need help blanketing the city with flyers telling of CHOICES’ services and the hotline number.

You can participate by joining our party on Oct 16 at 3 p.m. We’ll meet outside Marcella’s in the Short North before going door-to-door distributing flyers. At 5 p.m. we’ll meet back up for dinner at Marcella’s. There will be a selection of free appetizers and a cash bar.

Please RSVP by Oct 12 to Pam at pgeorgiana@lssco.org.

CHOICES in the News

CMC Where’s The Line? Forum

Lutheran Social Services President and CEO Larry Crowell joined Abigail Wexner at the Columbus Metropolitan Club Forum on February 11, 2015 to discuss the issue of domestic violence.

Across the nation, 60% of the population knows someone who is the victim of domestic violence.  The Center for Family Safety and Healing hopes to change this statistic by introducing Where’s The Line?, an innovative campaign focused on raising awareness about family violence and increasing bystander response.
