Domestic Violence Awareness Ministry

OLPH Domestic Violence Ministry Mission

It is the mission of the OLPH domestic violence outreach ministry to bring awareness of domestic violence and family abuse to the OLPH community. We strive to inform and educate all as well as direct those affected by domestic violence to resources for assistance to aid in their struggles towards safety, recovery and healing.

Remember, you are not alone. If you are a victim of domestic violence, or know someone who is, and need help, please contact:
