This episode contains discussion of domestic violence which may be disturbing for some listeners. Listener discretion is advised.
Home is not safe for everyone.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience domestic violence. 
In this episode, Dr. Natalie Phillips spends time with Kari Clark, Executive Director with Alternatives to Violence as she talks about the alarming statistics of domestic violence and the increased need for our community to step up and be aware of patterns of behavior and how to start a conversation to save someone. 
Alternatives to Violence serves Loveland, Colorado and southern Larimer County by providing free shelter, advocacy, education and resources for people impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Since 1982, Alternatives to Violence has offered victims the opportunity to heal both emotionally and physically in a supportive environment. Each year, they provide emergency shelter, safety planning, advocacy, information and referrals to local resources, crisis intervention, and in some cases longer-term housing to over 800 people.
Even in social distancing, a pandemic does not cause abuse. It was already there. It is up to us to step up.
“Be the light for someone.” ~ Kari Clark
