Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Abuse

Anyone can be abused, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, income level, race, religion or physical ability. NO ONE deserves to be abused.

Does your partner:

  • Frighten you with his/her temper?
  • Regularly criticize or demean you?
  • Hit, kick, push or physically harm you in any way?
  • Limit or control your access to money or transportation?
  • Force or pressure you into having sex?
  • Keep you from seeing your friends or family?
  • Threaten to take away your children, call immigration or “out” you publicly?

 

It is not your fault! You are not alone. We are here to help.

We have many services to help you, including:

  • Creating a safety plan (whether you choose to stay with your partner or leave)
  • Emergency safe house/temporary shelter
  • Temporary restraining orders and legal advocacy
  • Counseling

 

For more information, please call our 24-hour hotline at 1.877.END.SADV (1.877.363.7238). If you or a loved one are in danger, please call 911 immediately.

At Community Solutions I met some wonderful women who helped me with my fears and helped me understand that I did not deserve to be abused by anyone.

Luz, age 50, Solutions to Violence

[Community Solutions] helped me with my problems and were there when I was having hard times. They have helped my family with a place to live and helped us pay some bills and buy some food when we needed it.

Serena, age 15, Child & Youth Behavioral Health

I cannot describe very well but all I know is that each day is getting better. Your program helps.

Jin, age 62, Adult Behavioral Health

Thanks to the program, I left the ugly house I was living in that had two small windows for the 8 of us, dirt floors, broken windows, no door, and the toilet always clogging. Now my children and I have a nice apartment where we have more space, privacy, and carpet where we can be barefoot.
