If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, please contact us. Services are available for those who have or who are experiencing domestic violence and their significant others. This includes dating violence, intimate partner violence, family violence, and caretaker abuse.
Domestic violence is a pattern of behaviors that one person uses to control another. The "violence" may take the form of emotional, mental, verbal, sexual and/or physical abuse. It may combine some or all of these aspects, but it is not always physical.
