We believe that all people have the right to live in an environment free from violence.

We're here if you need us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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. 

Examples of abuse include:

  • name-calling or put-downs
  • keeping a partner from contacting family or friends
  • withholding money
  • stalking
  • intimidation
  • actual or threatened physical harm
  • sexual assault
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.
