Although the Blackburn Center is geared to domestic and sexual violence it is appropriate to feature during National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Much violence against children—including spouse violence—occurs in the home, and children learn domestic violence and sexual abuse behavior in their homes. The chain must be broken.

About the BLACKBURN CENTER (Off their web page )

If you are a victim of domestic or sexual violence, the BLACKBURN CENTER  can help. All of our services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL, and are available for women, children and men. If you need immediate help, please call our 24 hour hotline at 724-836-1122 or 1-888-832-2272.

BLACKBURN CENTER advocates for the rights of all individuals to live free from domestic and sexual violence in their homes and communities by eliminating the root causes of this violence and providing for the well-being and safety of survivors/victims.

Our signature event, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, takes place each April in Greensburg. Walkers from Westmoreland County and beyond come together to support Blackburn Center’s mission to end domestic and sexual violence, and to raise awareness about these issues.  Some wear high heels, while others prefer sneakers.  Some carry signs, and others walk without signs.  One thing they all have in common is a desire to speak out against gender violence.

Will I find a pair of shoes that will fit?
