Domestic Violence - A cycle of violence

  • One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
  • An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
  • 85% of domestic violence victims are women and historically, females have been most often victimized by someone they knew.
  • One in 6 women and 1 in 33 men have experienced an attempted or completed rape.
There is a cycle of violence that continues over and over and over again. It doesn't stop until you find a way to break free of that cycle.

If you need immediate assistance, dial 911.
