Domestic Violence

We’re here to help

When you are a victim of abuse, sometimes it's hard to make sense of what's happening to you, and sometimes it's hard to know what to do about it. You may feel confused, embarrassed or afraid. But domestic violence is not your fault. No one deserves to be hurt by words, hands or control.

If you think you may be a victim of domestic violence, call the numbers or see resources below for help.

If you're in immediate danger, call 911.
