Description

They understand the ways that domestic violence can impact victims, and they know how difficult it can be for a person to leave an abusive situation, seek help, and meet the ongoing needs of themselves and their children while maintaining protection against further abuse or harassment. Because of this, they work to provide opportunities for people who have been affected by domestic violence or who are looking to limit the impact of domestic violence on families in the United States.

With the John T. Fields & Associates, LLC Fight Against Domestic Violence Scholarship, they provide financial assistance to college students, helping them achieve their goals and take steps to better our society.
