MARYLAND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS
Help for Women & Children

Maryland domestic violence victims come from all walks of life, incomes, social ladders, professions, national origins, cultures, races, ages, genders, disabilities, marital status, veteran status and religions.

When you are searching for a safe place that can take care of abused and battered women and children, it is important to remember that your abuser could easily access your Internet activities if you are using the same computer or network. Take the necessary precautionary measures to avoid additional conflicts and use a different computer (at the library, at work or at a friend’s house), one he/she cannot access. If you are using a PC that is vulnerable, make sure you cover your tracks by deleting all e-mails and web browser usage and history.

Call 911 immediately if you feel that you or your children are in imminent danger. Also, domestic violence crisis counseling can be accessed by phone or in person which offer support and intervention groups for battered and abused women and children. In some cases, free legal help can be obtained for the low-income families.
