Life Crisis Center using kindness rocks to offer hope for survivors of domestic violence

Life Crisis Center using kindness...

SALISBURY, Md. - The Life Crisis Center is taking a nationwide trend and hoping to use it to help locals.

Kindness rocks have become quite popular, popping up everywhere you go.

Now, Life Crisis hopes to use these colorful rocks to heal survivors of domestic violence.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

They hope community members take this time between now and October to create kindness rocks for just that.

It should include words of encouragement. On the back of the rock, you should write 2-1-1, which happens to be their information assistant line.

Purple is the color for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so make sure to paint it that color as well.

Creating these rocks will be a great way to get the word out and bring hope to those victims.

Life Crisis Therapist, Farah Vangenderen tells 47 ABC, "There are services available for them, we have advocacy services, we have hotline services, we have shelter services, we have therapy services, and so if people aren't quite ready to put themselves out there yet for that, to give them some encouragement that things can get better."

If you'd like to create a rock for this cause, they will be set up at Third Friday in October at Downtown Salisbury.

You can also leave them at any of the child advocacy centers in Worcester, Somerset, or Wicomico County.
