Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one person to gain or maintain power and control over another person.

The person who abused you can be an intimate partner, current or former spouse, parent of your child, someone you are dating or have dated, or someone you live with. The person can also be any family member related by blood, adoption, or marriage.

If you are experiencing domestic violence, you are not alone.

If you or someone you know are in immediate danger, call 911.

For support and referrals for services, call the National Domestic Violence Line at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or chat with a live advocate.
