Domestic Violence Prevention Awareness – You Are Not Alone, Help Is Available

Help is available, you’re not alone. 
Many New York City government agencies and nonprofit community organizations provide services to domestic violence victims throughout the five boroughs.

Services include emergency shelter and permanent housing, orders of protection, financial assistance, counseling, health care, civil legal assistance, self-sufficiency, and filing police reports.

Domestic violence occurs in families of all races, cultures, religions, and income levels. No matter what your immigration status is, if someone is abusing you, help is available.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence,
call 311 for New York City’s Domestic Violence Hotline. In emergencies, call 911.
