Healing and Hope: What Domestic Violence Survivors Need to Know

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Community groups across our region encourage us to take a stand against intimate partner violence and to show our support by wearing purple ribbons throughout the month. Even the Terminal Tower is lit with bright purple lights periodically throughout October to encourage a greater civic conversation about domestic violence.  Cuyahoga County proudly joins this campaign and pledges its support for all victims of domestic violence. 

Finding new ways to stop scams

One of the biggest obstacles the Department of Consumer Affairs faces in preventing scams is human nature. Scam victims often tell us that the calls they got were so real, and so worrying, they ignored a nagging feeling something was amiss. It was only AFTER they paid money that they clearly saw all the red flags and realized they’d been scammed.
