Oct. 2, 2019 — Siuslaw Outreach Services (SOS) led a short, somber walk down Bay Street on Sunday, followed by  a brief vigil on the Port of Siuslaw Boardwalk in recognition of the victims of domestic abuse.

SOS Executive Director Bob Teter spoke to the small crowd in attendance on the need for awareness of this issue as it continues to impact communities of all sizes and economic means. The walk was led down Bay Street by the Florence Police Department and cheerleaders from Siuslaw High School. 

A small group of victims, relatives and those who work with and for the victims of domestic violence walked silently in support. SOS helps with not only domestic abuse situations, but also provides assistance to those who need housing, food or counseling.
