Domestic Violence Resources

December 12, 2009

Please note – as many violence support websites do – that Internet history can be difficult to completely clear if activities on a home computer may be monitored by an abuser. In some cases using an alternate machine, such as at a public library, may be preferable/necessary.

Each of the resources below offers a variety of information and support for victims of violence; I’m highlighting a couple of features of each, but my descriptions are by no means exhaustive. Any of the below resources may be a good starting point for getting help.

The National Network to End Domestic Violence has a few tips on internet and computer safety and generally on getting help.

National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1.800.799.SAFE (7233). “Am I Being Abused?” list of relationship factors to consider. Website has a “quick escape” feature to quickly leave the site. There is also a directory of state help resources, and resources for safety planning Signs of an Abusive Personality, legal resources, and more. Legal information resource for abused women, as well as information on abuse, getting help, and staying safe (internet safety, preparing to leave, etc.). includes a safety planning list of things to remember to take when leaving an abuser and lots of additional resources

MedlinePlus: Domestic Violence – links to overviews and information from the National Library of Medicine
