DV Awareness proclamation

The Town of Payson recognized the Time Out Shelter by proclaiming October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Payson Town Council honored the Time Out Shelter for its work.

Last year, Time Out served 70 women, two men and 50 children as residents. An additional four women and eight children received transitional housing help from Time Out.

Since Time Out is the only shelter in Gila County, residents from the southern part of the county use the services.

Time Out often helps those from other states escaping especially violent and egregious abusers. Some of these victims have to start over with a new identity to remain safe.

On top of that, 178 people received counseling and services. Services include safety planning, crisis counseling, lay legal and community advocacy, community education, a children/teens program and follow-up programs.
