Women’s Advocates is a safe place where victims/survivors of all backgrounds and cultures can escape domestic violence and begin to heal. We offer shelter, meals, clothing, transportation, personal needs items, counseling, support, advocacy, referrals, crisis phone, and other basic services to women and their children daily. Today, Women’s Advocates provides shelter and services to an average of 50 women and children daily, helps dozens of callers to the crisis line daily, and educates students and professionals about domestic abuse prevention and services.
This presentation covers statistics on domestic violence, the definition of domestic violence and its various forms, the cycle of power and control present in domestic violence, ways to intervene and prevent domestic violence, factors that might contribute to domestic violence, and how to help yourself, friends, or family members who may be experiencing abuse.
