Help for Women & Children

Kentucky 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.

Any form of abuse is damaging and can leave deep and lasting scars, weather it’s economic/financial, emotional, psychological abuse or physical violence. THE WARNING SIGNS: living in fear of a family member, intimate partner, close friend or housemate; light or dark bruises; visible injuries; loss of confidence; withdraw from friends and family; and feelings of sadness, helplessness, self-loathing, and desperation.

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.
