Alpha Chi Omega has two main philanthropy initiatives: domestic violence awareness and the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation.
What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence is the intentional intimidation or abusive behavior perpetuated from one partner to another, and includes physical violence, sexual assault, and/or verbal abuse.
Often times, domestic violence goes unnoticed and is statistically found to be most prevalent between the ages of 18-24 - typically the age of college students. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be subject to some kind of domestic violence during their lifetime. We are women empowering women, but work so that we are promoting awareness for men as well.
