A topic that's on the minds of many and I feel it is very important to address. Ask yourself three questions:

1. Why haven’t I left?

2. Who have I called to seek assistance in planning my separation?

3. What’s the Law?

Understand why you stay and try to get over it and on your way to a better life.

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injuries in women and more than three deaths a day occur from physical aggression in the U.S. by someone they love or loved at one time. Sadly, studies report “up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually,” ( and many don’t receive counseling to avoid the vicious cycle of abusing women.

Leaving your home can be the most difficult thing to do because of the lack of a plan, the lack of money for the escape, or a local support system. But, please, smarten up and look to the future of living without pain and humiliation for you and for the children. There is help available and it’s as simple as picking up the phone to call a hotline where concerned volunteers are ready to help you make a plan and offer information so you can safely plan your separation from danger.

Call! In the U.S., the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3224 (TDD for the hearing impaired) and they will assist you in locating the nearest assistance to your home. Please remember to plan, plan, plan.

Make your phone calls, share your problem with a volunteer or professional before making a move so you’re not stuck returning home. You must plan to be successful in your separation.
