One of Mercury One’s pillars of service is service to our community while encouraging you to do the same in your own communities. It is from this pillar that we forged a relationship with Hope’s Door New Beginning Center – a North Texas-based organization supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence.
Domestic violence is defined as any behavior that attempts to assert power and control over another person, specifically an intimate partner…this can be physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, or financial. National statistics show that a staggering 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives. The abuse typically escalates over time and coincides with feelings of fear and shame on the part of the victim, making it difficult for the victim to come forward and seek help.
