FEEDBACK FROM SURVIVORS​
I have never had people so eager and willing to help me.
Survivor
OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The advocate was so comforting and helpful. Just having someone to listen and understand what I'm going through does a lot. The advocate helped me address all of my safety concerns and made sure I had food/clothing/toiletries-small things that go a long way. Thank you so much for everything!
Survivor

Frequently asked questions . . .

Our services are available for anyone who has experienced abuse from an intimate partner or sexual assault from anyone.

Services are free and confidential.

The purpose of an order of protection is to provide safety for yourself and possibly your children.  If safety is not a concern they cannot be used as a tool to gain custody of your children.  However, if safety is a concern custody can be requested within the protection order.

Taking the first step in getting help can be overwhelming.  You don’t need to have all the answers, we are here to help you figure that out.  You are always welcome to call our Help Line or email a CARDV advocate to process your concerns.  Our services are free and confidential.  You are not obligated to anything when taking that first step.

Is someone you know in an unhealthy relationship?  There are ways to help.  Learning the best way to support someone may make all the difference.
