Domestic abuse is the emotional, financial, sexual or physical abuse of an intimate partner or family member.
Domestic abuse is not only physical violence, it can look like name-calling, screaming, or controlling who you talk to and what you wear. Anyone can be an abuser– husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, parents, children or extended family.
You know your own life and situation better than anyone else. No domestic abuse service will tell you what to do, or ask you to leave the relationship. Whether you choose to stay in or leave the relationship, we can help you with safety planning, and help you to find support in your area.
