Abuse is NOT always Physical

If your partner:

  • humiliates you
  • yells at you
  • makes you feel crazy
  • isolates you from friends
  • tells you what to do/can’t do
  • demands sexual favors
  • makes threats to harm
  • destroys your things

you may be suffering abuse.

We Believe You

Abuse happens to people of all ages, races, income level, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

You have the RIGHT to be safe.

We are ALWAYS here:

  • To Listen
  • Support You
  • Give the Facts
  • Help Take Action
