HONORING DADS

Unfortunately, since the start of the economic downturn the Family
Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) has seen a significant increase in the
demand for domestic violence services such as shelters, hot lines and
counseling. Experts say that now more than ever it is important for
parents to learn the tips to prevent relationship and family violence.
Thus, the RESPECT! Campaign www.giverespect.org , a non-profit
to end relationship violence and build strong, healthy families and
communities.

The campaign also honors role model dads and shares the endearing and
memorable ways our fathers teach us love and respect every day. This

offering several simple ways to thank the dads you know for the great
example they set and ways to Give Respect!
