George Sherman from Park Ridge Rotary
On Thursday evening, April 9, Park Ridge Rotary Club members heard a sobering presentation about domestic violence and its social costs that extend well beyond the actual victim. An article entitled “Domestic Violence and the Workplace” that was written by our guest appears here.
Sabrina Osso, founder and president of Floor It, LLC, has both personal and professional experience with home violence. Since 2012 she has committed herself to making it a thing of the past by raising this difficult topic with community groups, business groups, educational institutions and others.
Only through education and political action can the scourge of domestic violence be eradicated. To this end Ms. Osso has developed a series seminars and workshops with the aim of informing, educating and empowering employees, clients and students.
Believing that home violence must be removed from the charity realm and brought into the mainstream as a demand for a better quality of life, Floor It, LLC has been created as a for profit entity. The erasure of home violence must NOT be in the hands of the victims but instead the responsibility of the institutions of society.

Sabrina has an incredible passion and commitment for making domestic violence a local priority. Her Home Sweet Home Workshop challenges the way our communities respond to domestic violence and empowers victims to be able to lead healthy independent lives. Sabrina's unwavering dedication implores us to speak out on an issue that is too important to stay silent.

I find Ms. Osso presentation regarding domestic violence to be a unique approach with a persuasive message necessary to help heal individuals and our society today. Her personal and professional insights into the significant and often hidden impact of this issue, and urgent need for proactive solutions at home and in our businesses today are compelling. It is worth your time to explore how you can be part of the needed solution.
