Speak Up
The Halifax River Yacht Club in Daytona Beach was the setting for the 5th Domestic Violence Awareness Luncheon and Meeting for the Domestic Abuse Council, Inc. of Volusia County. The event takes place during October because it is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and a time to honor the survivors and victims. During the event, members of the Board of Directors were sworn in by Judge Dawn Fields. Three survivors shared their inspirational stories to a crowd of more than 190 community supporters and declared that they were rock stars. Each individual at the event was asked to become a rock star by writing a positive word or affirmation on a rock, displayed on the table in glass star shaped bowls. After the luncheon, the rocks were deposited into the empow-erment bank at the shelter, where residents can make withdrawals and deposits as needed to lift their spir-its.
Speak Out
Purple Parade Sept. 27, 2014 Hundreds of people turned out for the 3rd annual Purple Parade in Daytona Beach on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Once again, the Domestic Abuse Coun-cil, Inc's. event to raise awareness to prevent bullying and domestic violence was well attend-ed.
The keynote speaker this year was na-tionally recognized Stacey Dougan, a lawyer and pioneer in the field of workplace violence and "Men Stopping Violence." She gave a rousing speech focusing on how domestic violence affects all segments of our population and how collectively we can make an impact on social change by hold-ing perpetrators accountable and not re-victimizing the victim. "We believe there is more awareness in both our local community and across the country. We are happy to see this shift, since we know the only way to end domestic violence is to prevent it," Cheryl Fuller, CEO of the Domestic Abuse council said.
Board of Director members Sherrilee Staudt and Joeretha Hayes were honored for their years of service. 

Students from elementary schools to middle schools to high schools to colleges and universities attended in addition to people from cities all over the county. To share in the festivities, there were magicians, face painting, self-defense demonstrations and Daytona Destiny Drum line once again lead the processional.

Speak Now
Two dozen community leaders recently joined staff at the Domestic Abuse Council, Inc. to celebrate the "Raise the Roof" cam-paign. Through a CDBG grant from Vohtsia County, a private foundation donation, gifts from private individuals and in-kind dona-tions from experts in engineering and roofing consultants, the total commercial project cost about $150,000. "Because of the generosity of the professionals, including Dickens & Associates Engineering and ECS Florida who aided us in launching this pro-ject, we saved about $50,000. If they hadn't do-nated their services, we would have had to spend our reserves to complete the roof replacement," Cheryl Fuller CEO for the Domestic Abuse Coun-cil said. In the last two years, shelter bedrooms had to close during torrential rainfall and were untena-ble for those in crisis. Since the roof completion in August, no rooms have closed because of water penetration. In fact in August, the emergency shelter was full, serving 102 different individuals with over 1200 bed-nights.
