victims of domestic violence?

IF SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP:

  • Don’t gossip
  • Believe their story
  • Tell the Victim that they Do Not Deserve Abuse
  • Know your Local Resources
  • Encourage the Victim to contact DVRC for Help

Victims of Relationship Violence and Sexual Assault are left in trauma. Fear (for themselves, their children, other family members, etc.) can convince a victim that they have no options. By offering support and understanding, you might save a life.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, reach out for help today.
