Domestic Violence Advocates
Do you feel like you are walking on eggshells to avoid a violent outburst? Is your spouse or partner bad tempered and moody? Do you feel your spouse or partner has you on a short leash, dictating your every move? Domestic violence comes in many forms. Physical abuse is the most obvious, but domestic violence also includes sexual, emotional and verbal abuse. It also includes stalking and cyberstalking.
Our support staff at Open Heart Advocates is here to help. If you or someone close to you is experiencing threats of violence from someone, or violence from a partner or spouse, we’re here to guide you through creating a safety plan — steps you can take to keep you and your children safe. Completing a safety plan before taking action or leaving home can be helpful in seeing your options.
If you are an immigrant, seeking help does not mean deportation. There are U.S. laws in place to protect immigrants who are victims of domestic violence when they seek help.
There is always a way out. If you or someone you know needs help, call our 24-Hour Crisis Line today.
