Please let us help.
Domestic Violence has been called an 'invisible crime' because its victims hide their abuse out of fear and shame. Domestic violence crosses all boundaries: social, economic, educational, ethnic, sexual orientation, cultural, age, gender, etc. It affects families, friends, extended families, neighbors, co-workers and ultimately the entire community.
Law enforcement indicates that reported cases of domestic violence are only the tip of the iceberg of actual abuse being perpetrated in the home. Callers to domestic violence agencies often indicate that they have been abused for months or years and have never called the police.
The YWCA Support Network helps women and families suffering domestic violence by providing a residential shelter, counseling, legal advocacy and other critical services. If you or someone you care about is experiencing domestic violence, act now. We are here for you every hour of every day of the year. Your call will be completely confidential. Our services are all either free or low-cost.
