This is great news. Hopefully more centers will open across the United States.
A domestic violence shelter serving male victims has opened in Arkansas and is perhaps one of the first of its kind, according to Arkansas Online.
The Taylor House Domestic Violence Shelter for Men could be the first registered, stand-alone shelter for men in the country, said Patty Duncan, executive director of the non-profit Family Violence Prevention in Batesville, a city in northern Arkansas.
“Many people do not realize that domestic violence also affects men,” Duncan told Arkansas Online. “It’s not just male-female relationships. Domestic violence includes intimate partners, family and household members.”
The new shelter opened in October. It’s already housed five men.
