Voices of Hope’s Annual Open House & Candlelight Vigil
The public is invited to Voices of Hope’s annual Open House and Candlelight Vigil in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and in memory of lives lost to domestic violence. The two events will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at Voices of Hope’s facility at 2545 N St. beginning at 5:30 pm. Voices of Hope is Lincoln’s crisis center for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and related forms of abuse such as stalking and harassment.
The Open House, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, features tours of the facility, refreshments, and the opportunity to meet Voices of Hope staff and board members and learn more about the agency’s services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The annual Community Candlelight Vigil begins immediately after the Open House at 7:30 p.m. and is held outdoors in front of the facility. The program, titled “Sharing Hope”, will include music, a reading of the Mayor’s Proclamation recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and two survivors of domestic violence sharing their voices to help domestic violence in our community. The Vigil will conclude at approximately 8:00 pm. Both events are free and open to the public.
