What You Can Do About Domestic Violence

  • Share:
October 30, 2018
Domestic Violence has unfortunately been a part of our community and our world for many years. There are thousands of victims who have been abused without relief or hope that their abuse can end.

Alternatively, there are people who have never been abused, and don’t know what they can or should do to help prevent, intervene or stop abuse happening all around them.  Hands of Hope staff encourages, you  as bystanders or victims of domestic violence to have conversations to identify and find solutions to this problem.

By having conversations and being aware of what domestic violence looks like, - you are able to  know how to respond to abuse. For anyone out there who would like tips on what to do about domestic violence, here are four basic things to start with:
  • Recognize domestic violence happens every day and could be happening to someone you love
  • Look for signs of domestic violence in your own relationship
  • Give a victim someone to talk to
  • Talk with victims about safety or programs like Hands of Hope that can help
Hands of Hope  strives to intervene and prevent domestic and sexual violence and stalking through education, advocacy, and comprehensive strategies. They provide services and programs to victims, survivors and potential victims of domestic violence and abuse as well as the community in general.

These services are critical and require community support. We are grateful for the community support that allows us to continue to work to intervene and prevent domestic violence and stalking through education, advocacy, and comprehensive strategies.
