How to Help

Take a Stand Against Domestic Violencehelp

Educate yourself about the signs of domestic violence. Encourage your neighborhood watch to look out for domestic violence. Call the police if you see or hear evidence of domestic violence.

What Can I Do?

If you suspect that a co-worker, friend, neighbor – anyone – is experiencing domestic violence, here are some things you can to help:

  • Ask if something is wrong.
  • Express concern.
  • Listen and validate.
  • Offer help.
  • Support his or her decisions.

Talk to the person in private and let him or her know that you’re concerned. Point out the things you’ve noticed that make you worried. Tell the person that you’re there, whenever he or she feels ready to talk. Reassure the person that you’ll keep whatever is said between the two of you, and let him or her know that you’ll help in any way you can. Offer resources, such as the Crisis Center, for them to call or look up information on their own.

Support the Crisis Center

Join us in calling, emailing, and contacting our legislators to let them know how much our programs need funding and to ask them to support two of our bills.

When you are contacting a senator, you should focus solely on funding issues. When you are contacting a representative, please mention funding, SB209 and SB1547. Click here to review specific funding and learn why the Crisis Center needs your help.
