Survivors Speak

Domestic violence is a serious, preventable public health epidemic that affects millions of Americans each year. It can happen to anyone regardless of age, education, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion or national origin. Domestic violence is usually accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Because abuse often results in physical injury, psychological trauma and in severe cases, even death, it is a problem that affects our community as a whole.

Survivors tend to suffer alone in silence, leading lives of isolation, shame, fear and secrecy. It takes incredible courage and determination for a domestic violence survivor to step forward and seek help, and for some, there are still far too many barriers to justice.
