Domestic violence and child abuse and neglect can have detrimental and long-lasting effects on survivors' lives. Crisis House is committed to working alongside our community to bring awareness to these issues and share information to immediately stop cycles of violence.
It is essential to recognize the signs of trauma and have resources available for survivors to receive the appropriate support and assistance on their journey toward transformation and healing.
Domestic violence (also referred to as intimate partner violence (IPV), dating abuse, or relationship abuse) is a pattern of abusive behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.
