For someone trying to escape an abusive relationship, leaving is an important step — but it’s just the first step. Ruth’s House offers a safe shelter for those fleeing domestic violence. We also offer vital counseling and court advocacy services to help these brave women take the next steps.
As part of our #LightTheWay campaign, we created a Victim to Survivor Toolkit. This toolkit is designed to assist victims of domestic violence from victimhood to survivorship. In this toolkit we explore each type of abuse, tips on safety planning for each, and local resources for assistance.
Domestic violence is a societal problem. To eradicate it, we need to ensure that everyone understands that violence against a romantic partner is unacceptable. That’s why we’re working in our community to offer education and outreach that show the effects of domestic violence and set a course for ending it.
