Victim Services

Domestic Violence and Abuse

Criminal victimization of an individual is a traumatic experience that can affect women and children for a lifetime. Effective counseling and case management are very important so victims can regain their confidence and dignity as soon as possible. With proper counseling and support, their hope for the future is rekindled, and they can again take control of their lives. 

Citizens need to understand that violence and abuse of any kind against women and children are unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our community. We want to prevent domestic violence through the protection and empowerment of the victim, to rehabilitate family members, and to educate the public about domestic violence and its consequences. 

Abuse and violence are learned behaviors. Abuse and violence are chosen behaviors. Domestic violence is everyone’s business. We must expose domestic violence through the media, schools, and area organizations to bolster community awareness.
