Our annual Take Back the Night event was held recently at Schwiebert Park on the banks of the Mississippi River in Rock Island. The purpose is to raise awareness that sexual abuse and other interpersonal violence is a crime. We want everyone to know that if they have been victimized, Family Resources is here to help you recover your life.
Our speaker at Take Back the Night was a woman named “Amy,” who moved the audience with the story of the emotional abuse she suffered in her marriage, and the sexual abuse her children suffered in secret until one fateful day on a drive to a county fair. It’s difficult to take that next step alone. This video shows highlights of Amy’s story and the evening.
