WARNING SIGNS & RED FLAGS
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence.
What is Domestic Violence?
It’s not always easy to tell at the beginning of a relationship if it will become abusive. Domestic violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender.
How Can I Help a Friend?
Is someone you know in an unhealthy relationship? There are ways to help. It’s important for you to support them no matter what they decide to do, and help them find a way to safety and peace.
Are You Experiencing Abuse?
Abusive behavior is a pattern of behaviors used by a person to establish power and control over another. Physical, psychological, emotional, financial, and verbal abuse should all be taken very seriously.
How Can I Make a Safety Plan?
A safety plan is a personalized, practical plan that includes ways to remain safe while in a relationship or after you leave. Safety planning can help you cope with emotions and gives you the tools to tell friends and family about the abuse.
Our Prevention efforts focus on eradicating domestic abuse and sexual assault at its root causes and addressing the societal factors that allow these issues to exist.

Asking For Help is the First Step
There comes a point when you know you must leave.
We recognize that leaving an abusive relationship can be confusing and overwhelming. You may feel guilty, or blame yourself for the violence, even after attempts to keep the relationship whole.

Our 30-day program is designed to help you exit the relationship safely and recover from the effects. We provide assistance and advocacy in emotional, medical, legal, economic and housing issues. All services are provided in-house and are completely free of charge. Domestic violence can happen to anyone. We welcome and provide a safe space for all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, occupation or veteran’s status.
The first step in ending the violence is calling our 24-hour Bilingual Crisis Hotline at 1.800.300.2181
