FRANKLIN COUNTY,Va. -

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Franklin County Family Resource Center is spreading the word.

The group has been visiting and talking to churches and women's groups to spread the message. The number of cases the organization has dealt with is up in Franklin County.

It knows no boundaries. It’s for high level families; low level families. It knows no culture, no color; no anything,” said center director, Cynthia Treadway.

The group says it doesn't matter your gender all victims can call the center.
