Women In Need schedules panel, vigil

GREENVILLE — Women In Need has two more events planned in Greenville during the next week, as it continues the observance of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Women In Need assists the local victims of domestic violence through a variety of services, from emergency shelter care, a 24-hour crisis hotline, counseling, support and accompaniment through the legal system, aftercare, assistance with clothing and household needs, as well as job training and referrals.

The agency has scheduled a program and panel discussion, “From Surviving to Thriving”, starting at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Best Western Monica Royale Inn & Suites, 3001 Mustang Crossing in Greenville.

A candlelight vigil will conclude local activities for the month, starting at 6 p.m. October 30 on the north side of the Hunt County Courthouse.

The theme for this year’s observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month is “Even 1 is 2 Many”, and Women In Need said the events are being conducted in remembrance of the tragic death last summer of Stella Michelle “Doc” Ray, whose estranged husband was charged with capital murder in connection with her death.

Those wanting additional information can contact Michelle Lee, Community Education Coordinator with Women In Need, at 903-455-4612.
