Mile High Magazine 10/11/2020 Gateway Domestic Violence

Guest: Jeneen Klippel Director of Development and Public Relations October is domestic violence awareness month.  Unfortunately, the trend has still been going up since COVID-19.  There is a number of reasons this is happening but a big thing could be the anxiety around losing a job or even the stay at home orders.  The numbers at Gateway Domestic Violence shelter have tripled since the beginning of the pandemic.  Domestic violence is not an addiction related but more so a power and control issue.  Domestic violence does not have to be just physical; it can be financial, spiritual, sexual, and emotional.  If you need help, you can call 303-343-1851. https://www.gatewayshelter.org/
