October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) – Tessa in Colorado Springs
In response to the high rate of calls to local police from women who were being threatened or assaulted by their partners, Tessa was established in Colorado Springs in 1977. Today Tessa includes a confidential Safehouse, Victim Advocacy, Counseling and Children’s Programs, a 24/7 Crisis Line, and Community Outreach and Education program.
