The statistics are staggering. 1 in 3 women will be abused by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 1 in 15 children will be exposed to domestic violence. The effects of abuse are far-reaching. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates an excess of $727 million is lost in workplace productivity and nearly $8 million is lost in paid workdays annually as a result of domestic violence.
