  • Barriers & How We Respond

Barriers: In addition to individual barriers victims face when escaping violent relationships, society in general presents obstacles. A victim's reasons for staying with their abusers are extremely complex and, in most cases, are based on the reality that their abuser will follow through with the threats they have used to keep them trapped: the abuser will hurt or kill them, they will hurt or kill the kids, they will win custody of the children, they will harm or kill pets or others, they will ruin their victim financially -- the list goes on. (NCADV)

How We Respond: We work to mitigate these barriers by building a circle of trust and protection around you, this often starts with our Personal Protection Specialist and Counselors that support you with extraction from where the abuse is happening, transportation to safe house locations, accompany you to hospitals and court cases. We want you to feel supported mentally and physically. Our support doesn't stop there, we have resources to assist with child care and re-entry to the workforce, if applicable.
