October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
In honor of the victims who have lost their lives to domestic violence, the city of Worcester has named Wednesday, October 16 as â€œWear PurpleÂ Dayâ€.
Because RCAP Solutions is committed to supporting and providing resources to families who have suffered fromÂ domestic violence, RCAP Staff chose to wear purple today in recognition of this event.
