Statistics regarding domestic violence cases in Texas can be disconcerting. According to the Texas Council on Family Violence, more than 23,000 adults and children seek shelter from violence in their own homes each year. An estimated 74 percent of all Texans have either experienced domestic violence personally or have a friend or family member who has been affected by this heinous form of abuse.
