LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A local non-profit has already counted seven domestic homicides of woman and children this year in Nevada, which is about one-third of the previous 12 months combined.
To call Safe Faith United:
(702) 685-1500/English
(702) 586-1900/Spanish.

Rebeca Ferreira was a victim herself once. She escaped and founded Safe Faith United.

The non-profit helps victims, survivors, and family of domestic violence.

Ferreira says domestic violence is a choice and encourages education of youths and programs for men.

“If we teach men how to exercise their control that they need to have in a nonviolent way, that should be a solution to the problem,” Ferreira said.

Safe Faith United offers services for both English and Spanish speakers.
