Denim Day 2022:
In Italy in 1992, an 18-year old girl was sexually assaulted by her 45-year old driving instructor during her first lesson. The instructor drove to an isolated road where he raped her and threatened her life if she told anyone, then made her drive the car home. She told her parents about the assault that night, and with their support she filed charges against the perpetrator. He was arrested and prosecuted, leading to a conviction of rape. He was sentenced to 34 months in prison.
The perpetrator appealed his sentence and the case went to the Italian Supreme Court. Within a matter of days the conviction against the driving instructor was overturned, the case was dismissed, and the perpetrator was released. In a statement by the Chief Judge, he explained the decision by saying, “Because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she would have had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.”
The following day, female legislators of the Italian Parliament protested the ruling by wearing jeans to work. This call to action started International Denim Day, when people across the world show their support for victims of sexual assault and protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault by wearing denim.
Showing our support on Denim Day!
"Public Health touches all of us each day and in many aspects of our lives. We must maintain our focus for all people to attain the highest standard in physcial and mental health, which should also include a focus on an individuals social well-being as a fundamental right, regardless of where they live." -Felissa Ferrell Director of Health and Human Services/Director of Social Services Rockingham County Division of Public Health.
SquareOne is proud to announce that we have received our Certificate of Occupancy and will be beginning to start our transition into the new building very soon. In order to allow for the very important work of serving clients to continue by our amazing staff, we are looking for volunteers to help the agency in several ways. We need volunteers to help with moving items from storage units to the new building, pack and move supplies from the current office space as well as other locations to the new building and to help with assembling new furniture such as desks, tables, chairs and shelves. Since we are a non-profit organization this is a great opportunity for community service hours for scouts, civic groups, students, etc. We are also in need of donations of boxes and packing supplies. We have an outbuilding that will need to be relocated if anyone has suggestions. If you have a few hours available, please email Board Member Maryjane Webb at [email protected].
We invite everyone to come support all of our partners and especially the Rockingham County Department of Health and Human Services Division of Social Services and Kaleidoscope Childrens Advicacy Center who work tirelessly to support children and families in our community. These very important partnerships save lives and enhance the outcomes of those affected. Come out to see for yourself!

Looks like a wonderful time!!!!!
Thank you Ambra J. Preston for sharing your important story and serving as a member of the Board of Directors. Survivors are what powers our goals!
Instead of doing a countdown, I have decided to count day by day for the next 30 days.
I plan to post something each day that will help me along the way.
This process is not easy....
13th day of December with 13 days left....but that's ok, I'm gaining my strength daily.
I ought to get this photo framed! The photo below means a lot to me. Im standing between two amazing women in my life! The woman on the left is the Executive Director of (Help, Inc) SquareOne Family Justice Center, and the woman on the far right was my therapist for 6 long years. Just a couple months ago, we had a ground breaking of the new building that will be called SquareOne Family Justice Center in the County I live in for women and children services such as: Elder Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Sexual Assault at no cost. It is a non-profit agency, and it will continue to provide therapeutic services, as well as providing services for domestic violence survivors to feel safe, and so much more!!
There has been huge amount of work, even years to get this building built, and I am proud to be a part of it! As a current Board of Directors for the same agency - the same agency I came to seek services for my therapy, it's been nothing but God guiding me in the right direction.
Overall, the woman on the far right will always hold a special place in my heart, she helped dig out the most darkest moments when I didn't want to, and fought so hard to come in for a visit and not want to talk about it....but her pushing me through....that's hard work. Her words, "Im gonna have to pull some teeth today" will always be one of my memories with her. Her skills has led me to be the strong survivor I am today. She gets all the credit, and I'm forever thankful. ❤
Even being in the holiday season, the building project is coming along at a significant speed! Just look at how much it looks just like the original rendering on the sign!! We are currently on track for completion mid-February. Sub-contractors have been busy inside getting phone, electric and IT lines installed as well as insulation and interior sheetrock which will come in handy for painters, etc., who will be working in cooler weather. We also enjoyed a recent site visit with one of our building partners at NC Housing Finance. The agency transition team is gearing up for the move-in as well as the many details that getting into the new building will bring. Come check out our progress!!

Take a look at the post below to find out how you can participate.
This weeks accomplishment is the roof structure. Over the years of planning we have likened Help, Incorporated: Center Against Violence as an ‘umbrella’ agency for the SquareOne project and our partners…..this week we are a roof🙂. A roof provides structure, links and supports the underlying areas, protects everything from the outside environment and allows safety within the walls. We believe that our hard working staff can also be described this same way. They have provided all of these things not just for our clients and partners but also for each other. Though we may weather storms, our staff stands strong and committed to the goal. This project is about partnerships, none more important than the rest. They have all played an important role in this building project….none less important then the next. Today we want to thank our staff for all of your hard work and sacrifice…..our community and clients are lucky to have you!!
This week has been busy even with a little rain. We now have walls and tresses have been set….no mistake that we are building a building! The parking lot grading and preparation for the front parking area and a few utility projects are also almost complete. If you have visited the area you know it’s been constant activity🙂 We hope that our partners enjoyed the partner appreciation breakfast Thursday and share the same excitement and awe of seeing the progress and future of our project. Weeks like this week are overwhelming at times but well worth the additional work! If you haven’t been by lately please come by and take a look🙂
See that corner room in the first picture?????? That is the conference room….the room where dreams are shared, plans are made, meetings are held and hope begins. Besides the 11 bathrooms it’s a pretty important place! Interior framing is well under way and we can now see offices, and other locations throughout the building….so exciting! Oh….the conference room will have exterior French doors…..was a special request by admin staff and we certainly feel like the project deserves it 🙂
This week was week one of framing the exterior part of the building, preparing the dumpster pad, sinking the new fire hydrant and pouring the sidewalks. Next weeks goals are beginning interior framing, placing roof trusses and hooking up the water main. It’s beginning to look like a building now!
Solid foundations are key to life….they help distribute the weight and protect from surrounding environments…. much like the hard work done by Help, Incorporated: Center Against Violence and partners in the SquareOne project. As the physical foundation was set in place this week we are reminded that foundations are very important not just for our building but also for our clients, partners and staff. Even with significant rain this week construction is on schedule and huge progress is being made. Bar Construction and the sub contractors are doing an amazing job!
Stop by to visit us at Eden’s Riverfest today!!! Take a spin to win prizes and enter our raffle for a $50.00 Walmart gift card…..
This week brings beautiful sunsets and structural progress. Large piles of red dirt and solid foundations are present as well as a few friendly faces of local wildlife. A young ‘worker’ has informed us that deer, wild turkey and birds all over the beams have been abundant….makes us smile🙂 The crews are working hard and progress is happening fast while the weather is favorable.
We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night for great food, childrens activities and a double feature! Tickets will be available at the gate beginning at 6:00pm.
Week 2 construction update….the sun sets on beautiful red southern dirt! Graders are onsite clearing the land and preparing for a solid foundation…..much like the foundation our many clients will continue to receive here. We can now see the outline and size of where the new building will stand. 🎉
What an amazing day shared with FJC and building partners, staff, board, friends, family and most importantly survivors and clients! Thank you to each of you who contributed to this amazing day and who have supported us over the years, you are truly appreciated.
