Marta Peláez | Family Violence Prevention Services
As president and CEO of Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc., Marta Peláez understands the critical need to serve both victims and perpetrators. While Bexar County has one of the highest numbers of domestic violence homicides in the country, this nonprofit organization’s approach to serving entire families, in partnership with Child Protective Services, is being replicated in cities across Texas. Family violence and child abuse is happening in every neighborhood of San Antonio and has implications for generations to come. Listen to Marta to learn how to spot the signs of abuse and know the resources available in our community. If you or someone you know is the victim of domestic violence, call the confidential Battered Women and Children's Shelter Hotline at 210-733-8810.
