What can I do?
Domestic violence impacts many people, more than the
immediate parties involved.
Often those people affected choose to ignore the problem,
rationalizing that it is none of their business. Oftentimes friends,
family mambers, and especially the victim feel helpless and don't
know where to start in providing or getting support .
However, inaction on the part of anyone aware of or
involved in a family violence situation, can be deadly.
