  • Letting them know there is help available and help them find resources.
  • Not giving up on them, even if they are not accepting of help at first.

What is Domestic or Family Violence?

Family violence is actual or threatened physical, sexual, psychological, emotional or financial abuse directed toward a family member.

It includes intimate partner abuse, as well as abuse that is directed to others in a family relationship.

An intimate relationship can be between people who are married, living together, dating, separated or divorced.

Violence can happen in any family and affects women and men of all ages, cultures, income levels, religions, professions and abilities.

Without help, abusive relationships only get WORSE.
