You don’t have to live with the abuse. Take control of your life.

Am I being abused?

Does your partner:

  • Call you bad names and put you down?

  • Control what you do, who you see, where you go?

  • Isolate you from your friends and family?

  • Prevent you from having or keeping a job?

  • Destroy your personal property or sentimental items?

  • Throw objects at you?

  • Hit, slap, punch, choke, kick or bit you?

  • Use your children against you or threaten to take them away?

  • Intimidate you with guns, knives, or other weapons?

  • Blame you for his violent actions?

  • Force you to have sex against your will?

  • Threaten to injure you, the children or themselves if you leave?

If you answered yes to even one of these questions you may be a victim of domestic violence.


You Have the Right:

  • To live in a healthy and safe home

  • To expect help and respect

  • To make your own choices including the decision to leave the abusive situation

  • To see and talk to friends and family

  • To your feelings
