Thank you for printing the letters to the editor on the Ellicott case that included important resource information for victims of family violence.

The media plays an important part in making victims aware of the resources in the community and making the community aware of the devastating effects of violence within the family.

Georgia Legal Services provides free legal representation to domestic violence survivors in your area who wish to get temporary protective orders against their abusers. Contact an attorney by calling 404-894-7707 or 800-822-5391.

Thank you again for your efforts on behalf of victims of abuse.
