Domestic Violence In Kentucky

Thousands of Kentuckians are experiencing domestic violence. According to the Kentucky Coalition, 26,971 domestic violence related calls were received in 2016.
Do our laws protect and support the victims? Is the support network receiving what it needs to properly serve survivors?
