DID YOU KNOW. . .
Domestic Violence Shelters offer a lot to victims:

"An information highway for victims of domestic abuse."™ 
Did you know. . . 

For many victims leaving is not an option. There may be nowhere to go with few or no resources existing within the community to offer help. Or, if help is there and you do not know how to get it.
That is why we are here, we want to help victims by arming them with information and resources to help them leave an abusive situation. And by helping them find out, there is life after abuse!

Victims  of abuse need your support
It is important to remember that if you have a family member or loved one who is in an abusive situation, they need your help. . ..
Please keep in mind:  Remember that they have been verbally assaulted and might believe the bad things about themselves that they have been hearing. They will be afraid that you will judge them, so be sure to not do that.
 
It is very important for a victim to be told and to believe 
that they do not, nor does anyone, deserve to be abused. 
Convince the victim that help is available, 
and make sure you know how to assist in finding that help.
