Domestic Abuse

One in three women and one in four men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.  

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes
physical violence, sexual violence, threats, and emotional/psychological abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence varies dramatically. (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence)

If you are concerned about the immediate safety of you or someone you know, call 911.
