What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is defined as a pattern of behavior within a relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.

Does your partner ever…

  • Call you names or put you down?
  • Keep you from seeing or talking to family of friends?
  • Push you, slap you, strangle you or hit you?
  • Threaten to hurt or take away your children?
  • Prevent you from honoring your beliefs?

We provide support services to help those who want to stop violence, and are determined to reach their goal.
