of Domestic Violence
The Orchid Fund is dedicated to helping LindsayFerraro, a survivor of domestic violence, raise the awareness of Domestic Violence. In return scholarships will be awarded to Billerica Memorial High School students that share her common interests – love of life, the arts, music & sports.
Domestic violence, sometimes called domestic abuse, is reaching epidemic proportions. It affects men, women and children of all races, social and economic levels. In order to slow the rise of domestic violence we have to not only stop the abuse and protect the victims, but we also have to understand what triggers the abuse so that the next generation of families can learn to live abuse-free.
