Abuse is an Epidemic

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that one partner uses to gain or maintain power and control over another partner. Learn What Abuse Looks Like on DomesticShelters.org

Did you know that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience some form of abuse in their lifetime?

Domestic violence isn’t always easy to see. It doesn’t always come with bruises or a black eye. Victims might not always be in imminent danger. Instead, they might feel controlled or uncomfortable, be forced into doing something they don’t want to, or be intimidated by their partner - all common tactics of abuse.
