"We're here to support you. It's not always easy to come out when you are a victim of domestic violence," said Daquetta Jones, Executive Director of the YWCA of the Greater Capital Region. "But it opens our doors for people to come in and receive support to get out of that situation."

Ten million people across the country are victims of domestic violence each year.
