We can help you make a safety plan.


 

We know that the decision to stay or to leave an abusive relationship is a very hard one. We support you whether you choose to stay or leave.

Staying

If you are in an abusive relationship, we hope to help you leave, when you are ready to do so. Until then, we can help you develop a plan to stay as safe as possible.

We can help you identify warning signs for violence and develop a plan to leave when the violence is increasing. We can give you an emergency phone and help you reach out to friends and neighbors who can provide safety until help arrives.

If you believe it is safe to collect important documents, medication, clothing and other necessities, we can store a suitcase so you are ready to leave when the time comes.

Leaving

Remember that acts of domestic violence are usually triggered by a loss of power and control. Leaving a severely violent relationship can be very dangerous, but with our help you can do so safely.

Please call us before, during and after leaving a violent situation. We’ll help you develop a customized safety plan and explore ways to keep you and your family safe.

If you need help navigating a dangerous relationship, please call us at 719-486-3530. Our hotline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
