Denver mayor announces new domestic violence center

Domestic violence is a big problem in Colorado, and all cross the country for that matter, and Denver mayor Michael Hancock knows that all too well: He lost his sister to domestic violence about 10 years ago. Now he’s hoping that such violent crime can be prevented.

He noted as much in the annual State of the City address at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science earlier this week. The mayor announced plans to open a new domestic violence center in Denver.

The center, named the Rose Andom Domestic Violence Center, was kick-started with a $1 million grant by the woman for whom the center is named, Rose Andom, who is a local entrepreneur and CEO of Rosmik.

According to the mayor, the center will provide counseling, protective and legal services, medical care, resources for children and family pets and other comprehensive services.

The mayor recognized those who have worked on the center’s opening, including the Denver Domestic Violence Coordinating Council and Denver Public Schools. It wasn’t announced specifically when the center would be open.

Hancock noted that the center is dedicated to those who lost their lives to domestic violence, including his sister. He hopes that such centers will not only help victims, but perhaps prevent domestic incidents. He says of Denver, “A smart city is one that strives to prevent crime.” He also notes that he wants Denver to be a world-class city where everyone is valued.
