What We Believe
Relationship violence is a pervasive social problem which has a destructive impact upon families and the community.
Violence is causing or attempting to cause physical, sexual, psychological and emotional abuse, which may include but is not limited to intimidation, harassment, threats, stalking, financial abuse and intentional damage to property.
Individuals remain in an unhealthy relationship with an abuser for a variety of reasons.
