Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone. If you're afraid of your partner – or feel confused by some of the things that go on in your relationship – we hope you'll check out our red flags of abuse. They'll help you ask – and answer – a very hard question.

Are you being abused?

You see, abuse is used for one purpose – to gain and keep control over someone else. It can take many forms – psychological, emotional, sexual, and physical. It touches people of all ages, genders,and races.

If you feel like you're constantly walking on eggshells because of the person you're dating, living with, or are married to – or you're concerned about someone you know – we can help.

That's why we're here.

Check out our services. From our helpline and emergency shelter to support groups and guidance with safety planning to help with the legal system – and a whole lot in between – Family Violence Project is ready to provide a listening ear and whatever services you need as you untangle and work through your situation.

Recognize the warning signs – or red flags – of domestic and dating abuse.


Understanding abuse is the first step toward
ending it – in your life, in your community, in the world.
