KANE COUNTY—October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the color of the ribbon is purple. Mutual Ground, which provides services for victims in southern Kane and Kendall counties, is now decorated in purple ribbons. Organizations, companies and schools that would like their own purple ribbons and more information on domestic violence can call (630) 897-0084.
For many victims in an abusive relationship, seeking help is very difficult. To see what services are available, visit mutualground.org, or call the 24/7 bilingual hotline at (630) 897-0080.
