Why This Indicator Matters

All of us deserve to be safe in our own homes. When domestic violence assaults are up, the police are called with increasing frequency to respond to potentially violent situations.  Brain development science has demonstrated that when children are exposed to repeated stressful incidents, it affects their brains in long-term ways. Violence in a child's home is an adverse childhood experience. Children with adverse childhood experiences are more likely to have trouble in school, feel sad or hopeless and continue to have mental and physical health issues into adulthood.
