WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

Domestic violence is a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviors that adults or adolescents use against their current or former intimate partners or other family members within the home. Domestic violence occurs in families and in intimate relationships where the perpetrator and the victim are currently or previously have been dating, living together, married or divorced. LEARN MORE

WHAT IS SEXUAL VIOLENCE?

Sexual violence occurs when someone is forced or manipulated into unwanted sexual activity without his or her consent. It is purposeful, violent behavior. LEARN MORE

WHAT YOU CAN DO IF YOU ARE BEING ABUSED

Talk with someone you trust about the abuse.   Call Citizens Against Domestic Violence/Victim Outreach Center Hotline at 1-888-809-SAFE (7233). Call the police if you are in danger. Remember, you know your situation better than anyone else. Don’t let someone talk you into doing something that isn’t right for you. LEARN MORE

2018 CADV Christmas Family Request
At CADV, we serve hundreds of domestic and sexual violence victims each year, and over 90% of those individuals are unable to provide Christmas dinner, warm clothes or gifts for their families. They have been forced to give up these “luxuries” in exchange for trying to protect themselves and their children from the horrific violence they have experienced.

In an extended effort to alleviate some of the pain inflicted on these families, CADV (with your help) sponsors an annual Christmas program to provide them with gifts and necessities. Last year we were able to help 50 families including over 120 children through the program. We are looking for groups, individuals, neighbors, families, businesses, etc. to adopt a family in need. There are families of all sizes ranging from single individuals to families with 6 or more children. Would you be willing to adopt one of these families and make sure they don’t go without this Christmas? Don’t wait, please sign up now!
