October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This week’s edition focuses entirely on one of the ugliest of “Kentucky Uglies” - our state’s ranking among the worst in the nation for rates of intimate partner violence. We hear from domestic violence shelter directors, legal aid attorneys, a police detective, a 9-1-1 dispatcher and staff at the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence - all devoted to extending an often life-saving hand, shelter and a range of support to women and men who manage to escape the horror of a violent home.
