Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. These intimate partners can be spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, partners or family members.

 The Family Resource Center offers a variety of services to victims of domestic violence. Safety and protection from their abuser is often the most urgent concern of a domestic violence victim. We provide safe, temporary shelter for those who need it. We also assist with information, referrals, and advocacy for those who may need to seek a Protective Order or make other legal arrangements. Victims also need a variety of assistance in making important decisions and life changes. To help with this, we provide supportive counseling, referrals, safety planning, goal-setting, court and legal advocacy, and support groups.

 If you have any questions or need help with a domestic violence situation, please call our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-613-6145.
