What to do ...
1- What can I do as a victim of family violence to help myself?
  • If an argument seems unavoidable, try to have it in a room or an area that you can leave easily.
  • Stay away from any room where weapons might be available.
  • Practice how to get out of your home safely. Identify which doors, windows, elevator, or stairwell would be best.
  • Make a plan of what to and where to go if you are in danger. Tell your children of your plan if they are old enough to understand.
  • Take your children with you if you can. If you must leave them temporarily, make sure they can join you as soon as possible. See a lawyer as soon as possible about custody.
  • Keep an extra set of keys and emergency numbers in a secret hiding place.
  • Always keep some money hidden to help you get away.
  • Take identification, important papers and necessary medication for you and your children.
  • Keep a list of important phone numbers in the hiding place with your money.
  • Have a packed bag ready, containing the spare keys, money, important documents, and clothes. Keep it at the home of a relative or friend, in case you need to leave your own home in a hurry.
  • Work out a code word to use with your children, family, friends, and neighbors when you need emergency help

    Remember! You do not deserve to be hit or threatened!
