A community banding together to raise awareness for domestic violence can take many shapes, but on October 16th, 2018, it took the shape of baked goods. That is when Willow Domestic Violence Center, in service to their communities for nearly forty years, hosted their second annual Willow Bake-Off at Nosh restaurant in Rochester, NY.
At the event, Weinstein & Randisi attorney, Meredith M. B. Lamb, joined community members in a bake off to raise awareness for the Willow Domestic Violence Center. Lamb, and fellow competitors, faced judgement from their community partners, including Monroe County Sherriff, Todd Baxter.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Willow Domestic Violence Center provides free, confidential and judgement-free services to more than 7,000 Monroe County residents each year. Here is just a sampling of the services they provide:
- 24/7 Hotline
- Children’s programming and support
- Counseling (with childcare provided)
- Courtroom support
- Emergency shelter access
- Coordinated medical, legal and social services
Domestic violence victims often need help from law enforcement, medical and legal professionals. This bake off is an example of how professionals can come together to raise awareness for a common cause.
At Weinstein & Randisi, we have worked to combat domestic violence in the community for years and we could not have been happier to participate in this great cause. With her practice areas falling in divorce and family law, Meredith M. B. Lamb has worked hand-in-hand with countless domestic violence victims over the years, making her the perfect representative from our firm. Weinstein & Randisi knows that victims need a wide range of services along their path and we were proud to be involved in this event.
