PADV is Here to Help

Sadly, statistics reveal that it takes a vicitm an average of seven tries to leave their abuser for good.  This is oftentimes due to financial, emotional and relationship ties that aren't easily broken. Cutting off the relationship challenges the abuser's authority so leaving is commonly one of the most dangerous points of a violent relationship. However, PADV is here to help every battered woman successfully transition to safety and stability.

If you are in a violent relationship, trying to understand whether you are being abused or simply interested in understanding more about domestic violence, select an option to the right.
