Stop Domestic Violence!
Domestic violence should not happen to anybody.
But it does-and when it does, there is help. Maybe you lived with abuse, maybe it happened just once; maybe you work or live next to someone who is being abused right now.
Domestic violence not only affects those who are abused, but also has a substantial effect on family members, friends, co-workers, other witnesses, and the community at large.
Children, who grow up witnessing domestic violence, are among those seriously affected by this crime. Frequent exposure to violence in the home not only predisposes children to numerous social and physical problems, but also teaches them that violence is a normal way of life- therefore, increasing their risk of becoming society's next generation of victims and abusers.
