Domestic Violence Awareness-Verizon Wireless

Did you know 1 in 4 Latinas will experience Domestic Violence in her lifetime?

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Verizon Wireless has partnered with Casa de Esperanza in the hope and fight to end domestic violence and developed the HopeLine program, which is a cell phone recycling program where Verizon Wireless refurbishes and gives to domestic violence victims and survivors with wireless service free of charge. Since the launch of the HopeLine phone recycling program in 2001, this initiative has collected more than 7 million phones, given out more than $7.9 million in cash grants, and distributed more than 90,000 phones with more than 300 million minutes of free wireless service for use by domestic violence survivors.
