October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and our local crisis center has an array of events to get the community involved. One of the events includes tree planting and decorating. Every year, Crossroads decorates trees around Lima in purple ribbons and bulbs, and they even plant a new tree every year. The crisis center says their main goal is to educate people about domestic violence.

"We want them to really engage and learn about domestic violence. There's a lot of assumptions, there are a lot of things people just assume to be true which is not. We have to know the facts to actually truly help, and help end this," said Christel Keller, Crossroads Crisis Center executive director.
