What is Domestic Violence or abuse?

Abuse in a relationship refers to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse by an abuser towards their partner that is designed to control another human being through the use of fear, humiliation, and verbal or physical assaults. Domestic violence takes many forms and can happen all of the time, or once in a while. An important step to helping someone you know in preventing or stopping violence is to learn more about it. If you need help, please call. We can help.

Examples of Domestic Violence:

  • Name Calling or Put-downs
  • Withholding Money
  • Stalking or Intimidation
