If you are afraid for your safety CALL 9-1-1.
Tell the dispatcher your Life is in Danger and you need help Immediately.
If you can’t get to a phone to call 9-1-1, LEAVE. The first thing you should do is get yourself out of harm’s way and get to a safe place or a public place where others can see you.
Anyone Can Be a Victim
Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. Domestic violence occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, or dating.
If you are being abused, REMEMBER –
You are not alone
It’s not your fault
Help is available
If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help or would like to speak with someone about domestic violence, confidential help is available 24 hours a day. Our staff is prepared to assist callers in preparing safety plans, respond to general questions about domestic violence, provide referrals, and share additional information about our programs and services.
From our start in 1977 as a grassroots effort to provide assistance and support for women victims of domestic violence, Women Helping Women has steadily grown to become an established non-profit agency that provides a comprehensive continuum of services to over 600 women, men, and children each year. Throughout our history, Women Helping Women has expanded our organizational capacity to support a variety of programs, projects and activities focused on direct intervention, advocacy, education and prevention.
