Safe Harbors’ our mission is to provide safe options and ongoing support for those
experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking, while promoting the establishment of a safe community through education and awareness.
Safe Harbors’ primary purpose is to provide assistance to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and to provide community education to break the cycle of violence.
Everyone has the right to feel safe in a relationship……
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior where one person in an intimate relationship chooses to use controlling and abusive behaviors to maintain power over the other person.
Warning signs and questions to ask yourself….
Are you afraid of your partner?
Do you spend a lot of time monitoring your partner’s moods, on the look-out for “bad” signs?
Do you ask for your partner’s permission before spending money, making plans, or socializing with friends?
Does your partner hurt you by pushing, hitting, kicking, punching, slapping, or strangling you?
Does your partner humiliate you or call you names?
Does your partner threaten to hurt or kill you, your children or your pets?
Does your partner force or coerce sexual contact that you don’t want?
Does your partner blame you for the abuse he or she commits?
