The Domestic Violence Crisis Center has two programs for women in need:
- Domestic Violence help
- Sexual assault
Domestic violence is purposeful and intentional behavior.
The perpetrator's abusive acts are done to achieve compliance from or control over the victim.
Many people assume that domestic includes only physical types of violence; in actuality, perpetrators use many different controlling actions to achieve power over the victim.
These include physical, emotional, and sexual forms of abuse.
Please see their Planning to Leave page for information on safety planning and what to take when leaving an abusive situation.
Sexual assault is a crime which can happen to anyone.
Sexual assault is any sexual conduct with another individual which occurs by force, the threat of force, manipulation, and without consent.
Many sexual assault survivors also have been victims of sexual abuse as a child or teenager.
If this has happened to you, help is available.
It is never too late to talk about it in a safe, nonjudgmental setting and begin the healing process.
Domestic Violence Crisis Center has instructions on their page on what to do in violent circumstances.
DVCC also has examples of domestic violence on thier page as well.
