The Truth About Domestic Violence
The statistics on domestic violence in the United States are truly terrifying. Every year, nearly 5 million women and 1 million men are victims of domestic violence, and 10 million children witness an act of domestic violence in the home. Even more startling, more than half of those physically abused never report the attack.
The Perkins Insurance Agency is committed to ending domestic violence, and our team is launching a campaign to help abuse survivors and raise awareness of this concerning issue.
Ambassadors for Change
Erik Perkins Agency is a member of the #AgentsofChange group and part of a large network of agencies dedicated to providing meaningful assistance to families, children, and those in need. As regional Ambassadors of this group, our goal will be to provide direct support to abuse victims, ensure that resources are available for those who need help exiting abusive households, and launch community awareness and education initiatives to stop abuse before it starts.
We have a lot to do, and we’re seeking help from everyone in the Gilbert area who, like us, want to see an end to domestic violence.
Help Us Provide Shelter and Hope
We know that budgets are tight, so we’re not asking for donations. What we want is help sharing our message and letting people in our community know that there are options available if they are seeking escape from abuse.
If you refer a friend or loved one into Perkins Insurance Agency for a complimentary policy appraisal, we will issue a donation IN YOUR NAME to a local initiative aimed at providing assistance, support, resources, or counseling to victims of domestic abuse.

Now is the time to act. Domestic violence has affected millions of lives in our nation and right here in Gilbert, and it’s time to bring the abuse to an end. We hope you join us.
