Are You Safe At Home? You and your children deserve to be safe at home.
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior where one person in an intimate relationship chooses to use controlling and abusive behaviors to get and keep power and control over the other person. This can include emotional, mental, physical, sexual, social, and financial abuse. Abusive behaviors are not symptoms that someone is angry or out of control. An abuser makes a choice to use power and control over his or her partner.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all income and education levels. Domestic violence happens in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, separated, or dating.
