October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Since the pandemic began, the amount of domestic abuse cases seen in the Kankakee County Courthouse have increased dramatically. With that being said, I thought this would be the perfect time to sit down with, Jenny Schoenwetter, who is the executive director of Harbor House. The nonprofit organization exists to empower individuals, families and communities by providing domestic violence programs, advocacy and prevention.
I learned a lot about domestic violence through this episode and I enjoyed learning a little about Jenny’s life. Thank you for all the incredible work you do for our county, Jenny!
