We believe that violence against women is unacceptable and that nobody deserves to be abused. We believe that children should not have to witness violence, nor live in fear. We believe that each woman has the right to decide for herself the direction of her life, according to her own values and needs. We offer support with the choices she makes.
We offer a 24 hour telephone crisis line (506) 622–8865 or 1-800-888-836-1016 for individuals seeking information, support, and assistance regarding any issues involving domestic violence.
