DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior that one person uses to gain and maintain power and control over another, usually an intimate partner. Tactics may include physical, sexual, emotional, economic abuse, and isolation.
If you or someone you know is being abused, please call the NewStory Center 24/7 crisis hotline at 802-775-3232.
