Domestic Violence

Domestic ViolenceDescription

Domestic violence is when one partner attempts to gain power or control over another in a dating, marital, or live-in relationship through physical and/or coercive behaviors. The means of control can include physical, sexual, emotional and economic abuse, threats and isolation.

Our Services

Our experienced EAP counselors can assist you if you are currently experiencing domestic violence or if you have been in a relationship in which you were abused. We offer free and confidential consultation, information and referral services to you and your household members. 

Note: If you are presently in danger, the priority is for the safety of you and your children: first, make sure you and your children are safe. Take important documents with you and go to a safe place – home of a friend or relative or emergency shelter. Call the police if you feel you cannot leave home safely.
