In the Community
Verizon continues to focus on the quality of life for Rhode Islandresidents by investing in a wide range of programs that strengthen education, raise awareness of domestic violence, and improve health care through the use of technology.
The Verizon Foundation presented a $5,000 grant to Day One. Day One offers comprehensive group therapy for secondary victims of sexual assault. Continuing group therapy entitled 'Finding our Way Back: Reconnecting to Traumatized Youth' addresses the traumatic effect of violence committed by members of the family. This group therapy is effective support for caregivers of domestic violence victims since the caregiver has to be aware of their own emotional reactions and be able to manage it to effectively help the survivor.
