Bronx Week celebrates the 9th Annual DiVa Spa
On Monday, May 16, once again the Veterans’ Memorial Hall of the Bronx County Supreme Courthouse transformed into a fully operational salon offering free manicures, facials, makeovers and massages during the 9th Annual DiVA Spa, an event that serves as a platform to distribute information regarding domestic violence awareness, prevention and services available.
During this award-winning annual project residents learn what domestic violence is, how to identify a potentially abusive or violent relationship, what a healthy and respectful relationship is, where to get more information in the Bronx about domestic violence, how to support a friend or family member who is being abused, and where to go for help. They meet with experts and learn about opportunities to volunteer and intern in the field of domestic violence.
This year’s DiVA spa was sponsored by the NY Hispanic Cosmetology Chamber of Commerce.
