– Maya Angelou

Domestic Violence Support Group & Classes

Abuse comes in many forms. It is not only physical. Other forms of abuse, like emotional abuse, is so insidious and psychologically devastating that it can take the longest time to heal. Abuse has to do with obtaining power and control over you. Does your partner ever:

  • Make you feel unworthy of love?
  • Make you feel that the abuse is all your fault?
  • Threaten you if you don’t do exactly what he/she wants?
  • Act excessively jealous and/or possessive?
  • Discredit your values as unimportant, silly or unrealistic?
  • Control your finances?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, you might be in an abusive relationship. There is help. There are ways for you to work towards a life free of violence.
