The Family Abuse Center is hosting the Domestic Violence Annual Day of Remembrance at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Waco Suspension Bridge, paying tribute to individuals in its service area that were lost to domestic violence. During this time, the Interstate 35 bridge will be lit up in purple to remember those killed by domestic violence.

Family Abuse Center’s goal is to eliminate domestic violence in Central Texas by sheltering victims of domestic violence and by preventing abuse from occurring through intervention and education. In addition to McLennan County, Family Abuse Center also serves Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Limestone, Navarro and Ellis counties.
