Help for Women & Children

Maine 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 IF YOU ARE A VICTIM. Domestic abuse can never be justified or excused, when both partners use violence to get what they want or to get their point across, it creates an environment that is extremely toxic and harmful to themselves and especially their children, who will grow up thinking a dysfunctional relationship is normal.
