Domestic Violence Program

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is any hurtful behavior which is done by someone close to us. It happens over and over again.
Domestic violence is used by the abuser to overpower and control another person.


  • Assist survivors of domestic violence who are DDBHH and their children to secure shelter from further abuse
  • Provide information, support, counseling and advocacy to help survivors exercise their rights and take advantage of their options
  • Collaborate with other programs in the community to provide services to help survivors become self-sufficient
  • Educate the community that abusing a family member is a crime which will not be tolerated
