— This week’s shooting death of 17-year-old LaShonda Childs in what family and police have called a domestic violence incident with a former boyfriend has focused attention on what resources are available locally to help those in need.
If you or someone you know is in an emergency situation, dial 911 immediately.
Otherwise, the Artemis Center operates a domestic violence hotline that is staffed 24/7 at 937-461-HELP (4357). The Artemis Center says its programs have served more than 95,000 victims of domestic violence and their children.
YWCA Dayton also operates a 24/7 hotline at 937-222-SAFE (7233).
