If you are afraid for your safety CALL 9-1-1.
Tell the dispatcher your life is in danger and you need help immediately.
If you can’t get to a phone to call 9-1-1, leave. The first thing you should do is put yourself out of harm’s way and get to a safe place or a public place where others can see you.
Domestic Violence Can Happen to Anyone
Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. Domestic violence occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, or dating.
If you are being abused, remember:
- You are not alone
- It’s not your fault
- Help is available
