Domestic Violence is a Serious Problem

Did you know...

  • Every 15 seconds, a woman in the United States is battered by her husband, boyfriend, or live-in partner.
  • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44, more than car accidents, muggings and rapes combined.
  • In Lucas County, the Toledo Police Department receives over 300 domestic violence calls per month.
  • Over three million children witness violence each year.
  • 60% of children who grow up in violent homes go on to become batterers or victims.

Child Abuse Facts

  • Four children die every day in this country due to child abuse and neglect.
  • Abuse and neglect are the leading causes of death in children under the age of four.
  • Most sex offenders (90-95%) are known to the children they molest.
  • In Lucas County, there are nearly 1900 substantiated cases of child abuse each year.
  • One of four children will experience sexual abuse.
  • There are over three million reports of child abuse each year. And this is just the tip of the iceberg since many cases go unreported.

If you suspect child abuse or neglect, report it to your local child protective service agency. You may save a life!
