CLEVELAND — There are more than 3,900 victims of domestic violence in Cuyahoga County alone and bringing that number down — starts with knowing the signs.

When you're a victim of domestic violence it can be isolating. That's why a group started teaching folks how to recognize red flags.

It all starts with their group, Neighbors-2-Neighbors. They have gathered people to discuss how common the problem is, as well as to hear from a panel of men, because they too wear bruises.

The workshops offer healing for anyone who may feel broken. The group shares warning signs, symptoms and offers support.

The next session is Oct. 24 at Lee Heights Community Church, 4612 Lee Road, Cleveland, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
