“Domestic violence was a way of life for my home growing up. The fear and complexities accompanying this violence remain very real to me today.” — Troy Vincent, NFL Sr. Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Former NFL Cornerback
As young boys, Troy Vincent and his brother listened helplessly many nights from the closet or under a bed in their small apartment while their stepdad yelled at and beat their mother. Growing up, this was his model for a relationship. He remembers thinking, “Is this the way things are supposed to be?”
Today, Troy is thankful for the help and resources that exist for victims and survivors through The Hotline. Your support helps ensure these services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Please join Troy Vincent in showing leadership over violence by making a gift today.
