31 Oct 2021 | Under Press Releases | Posted by | 0 Comments

As we end October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, remember what Domestic Violence is!

Domestic violence is one person’s use of a variety of tactics to control another person in an intimate relationship. Does your partner: Hit, punch, slap, kick, shove or bite you?  Threaten to hurt you or your children? Abuse or threaten to harm pets?  Have sudden outbursts of anger or rage? Become jealous without reason?  Isolate you from family or friends? Prevent you from going where you want, when you want? Interfere with your job or going to school? Destroy personal property? Deny you access to bank accounts, credit cards or car? Control all finances? Force you to have sex or do things that make you uncomfortable? Insult you or call you names? Follow you or spy on you?  Humiliate you in front of others?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above, you might be a victim of Domestic Violence Abuse.

You are not alone.

Call 911 for help and assistance.

You can also contact the Victims Resource Center in Newark for help, assistance and advocacy at 315.331.1171.
