Holiday Help line
- The holiday season is not always filled with joy, instead it can be an emotionally tense time of year. Many people have unreasonable expectations for the holidays and become very angry when reality falls short. Every year without fail, the domestic violence rate in our neighborhoods increases during the holiday season.
Are you feeling angry, irritable or sad? BEFORE you lash out verbally or physically towards your partner, child or family member and before you drink too much call the holiday help line; the Hillcrest Children and Family Center is ready to help. Call (202) 232-6100 and ask for Daryl Lowe, MSW.
If you hear your neighbors arguing loudly or fighting call the police immediately and leave them an anonymous note with this phone number. Doing so could possibly save a life. On December 6, 2012, a 63-year old man allegedly shot and killed his 62-year old wife, underscoring an extreme example of domestic violence. Don't let yourself become entangled in an emotionally-charged incident that could easily escalate into violence. Call the Holiday help line; the Hillcrest Children and Family Center accepts most insurance plans, including Medicaid.
