Everyone deserves to be safe. This belief is at the core of every service we offer to people who are victims--or at risk of becoming victims--of domestic violence. We provide counseling, education, support, and advocacy. For victims (and their children) who need a safe place, we have a secure shelter.
Dangerous relationships usually start out as beautiful as healthy ones, but over time there is a pattern of abuse that escalates. One partner in an intimate relationship controls the other through force, threats, or intimidation. The abuse can be physical, psychological, emotional, verbal, sexual, and/or financial. The abuse is never the fault of the victim, and it doesn't usually stop without intervention. Call our Hotlne for confidential assistance.
