It is important to understand that abuse is NEVER the fault of the victim. Abusers choose their actions, therefore, the victim is never to blame, even if someone else claims so.
We provide safety and support to victims of domestic violence while working to break the cycle of abuse. We primarily offer crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and activities to support increased economic opportunities for victims. We endeavor to increase community awareness about domestic violence issues and bring about societal change through education and public policy advocacy.
Although victims are at increased risk of injury when trying to leave their batterer, they are safe only if they are able to successfully do so. We are here to help you leave safely and successfully, and we will still be here for you after the fact. Crisis shelters, transitional living and employment programs are important support systems that women and children need to escape the hold of domestic violence. Our Domestic Violence Program provides these support systems and does so in a cost-effective, fiscally sound manner.
