Oswego County designated October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month to raise awareness about the devastating impact of domestic violence and the variety of services available to its victims and survivors. Oswego County Opportunities' (OCO) Services to Aid Families (SAF) assists and empowers victims of domestic violence through prevention education for at-risk individuals and groups. People are encouraged to wear the purple ribbon which symbolizes courage, honor, survival and dedication to ending domestic violence. The Oswego County Legislature's Human Services Committee presented the certificate to members of OCO's SAF program and its community partners.
