You Are Not Alone: The Strength of Haven Hills
Always remember: domestic violence shows itself as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to get or keep power and control over an intimate partner.
Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions to influence another person. In an abusive relationship, one intimate partner uses physical, sexual, emotional or other violence to try to gain and maintain power and control over the other partner.
Every human being has the right to feel safe, to live each day, and rest each night, free from violent actions and intimidating threats.
Every human heart can admit what love is—and is not. Love is not abuse. Domestic violence is never acceptable in any relationship.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE.
Married couples. People who are living together or who are dating. Teens. College students. Newlyweds. So-called “Power Couples” blessed with wealth and fame. Men and women working to raise themselves out of poverty. LGBTQ partners. People with disabilities. Seniors. Anyone.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AFFECTS EVERYONE.
