where victims become

Survivors


women

Survivors of intimate partner violence are overwhelmingly female. Abuse can impact your job, housing, food security, and health. You are not alone. All cultural, religious, socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds are affected by domestic violence.

Men

If you are a man and are being abused, you are not alone. We know how difficult it can be to find support as a man experiencing violence and abuse in an intimate relationship as some people don’t understand how a man can be abused.

TEENS

1 in 3 teens in a dating relationship have been verbally, emotionally, sexually, or physically abused. Everyone, regardless of age, deserves to be in a healthy relationship.

LGBTQ

All too often LGBTQ folks are invisible victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence. Support and advocacy is provided to LGBTQ folks of all genders who are surviving abuse.
