What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behaviour used by one person to gain power and control over another person in an intimate relationship. This pattern may include physical violence, sexual, emotional and psychological intimidation, verbal abuse, stalking, and using electronic devices to harass and control.
Who is at risk for abuse?
Anyone can be a victim of Domestic Violence, no matter their age, race, economic status, religion, sexual orientation, or education.
While men can be victims of Domestic Violence, women represent the overwhelming majority of victims.
We help all women, and all persons idenfiying as female.
