Short Term Measures

It focuses on the critical period after a woman leaves her home, providing her with food, shelter, and guidance. This is the period when a woman is most at-risk to returning to her abusive partner.

Safety Plan

If you are in an abusive relationship, it is important to have a safety plan. If an argument occurs, think of a safe place to go. Try to avoid rooms with no windows or weapons. Have a list of people to contact and keep change on you at all times. Also have a code word to use with family or friends in case an emergency arises.
