Domestic Violence Program What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is the physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse of an intimate partner or family member. It is against the law. It affects individuals and families in every socioeconomic and demographic group, and has major social, health, and economic impact worldwide and in our own community.
The underlying philosophy of our domestic violence program is that every person has a right to live in a safe environment and to make his or her own decisions about their life. Our role is to support them, to provide information about resources that will help them move forward, to advocate for them when systems are blocking their progress, and to provide a safe place for them to stay when home is not safe.
