PENNSYLVANIA DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CENTERS
Battered & Abused Women's Help

Pennsylvania domestic violence centers provide a safe environment away from the dangers of a violent relationship while helping victims of abuse to overcome fear and anxiety and fight for their legal and human rights.

Shelters offer temporary refuge in the life-saving programs of emergency shelters or transitional housing to those who need to get away from a dangerous situation in order to avoid the risk of being killed, raped or seriously injured, regardless of race, age, national origin, religion, disability, marital status, or veteran status. Every single person deserves to feel safe, valued and respected.

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.
