Battered & Abused Women's Help

Louisiana 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.

There are various forms the ongoing abuse can negatively affect the lives of the abused, like causing depression, low self-esteem, drugs or alcohol abuse, or even worse: suicide. If you or your loved ones are in immediate danger CALL 911 for safety planning and assistance. Also, free or low-cost domestic violence attorneys can help you pursue your legal rights.
