JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Domestic violence can affect anyone, no matter age or gender.
Thursday morning, Hubbard House hosted it's 18th annual Barbara Ann Campbell Memorial Breakfast. The breakfast is part of Hubbard House's Domestic Violence Awareness Month efforts.
It's meant to honor victims of domestic violence, as well as to work to end it. All funds raised from the event support Hubbard House's Emergency Shelter.
Three former victims shared their stories of abuse. Their words at the Hubbard House's annual Barbara Ann Memorial breakfast had much of their audience in tears. (Watch the video above to see what they had to say).
First For You: If you suspect someone you know is a victim of domestic violence--there are warning signs to look for.
-People who are being abused may seem afraid or anxious to please their partner.
-They might talk about their partner's temper, jealousy or possessiveness.
-Victims could also frequently miss work or social occasions without explanation, and have limited access to money, credit cards, or the car.
If you recognize these signs in yourself -- or someone you know -- you can get help.
