Domestic Violence, Battering, Abuse … there are many words used to describe what one person is willing to do to control their intimate partner. It is a nightmare for many. The fact that someone we love or care about would harm us emotionally or physically is devastating. Please know that you are not alone.

Domestic violence intervention programs exist because battering by an intimate partner is the single greatest cause of injury to women. As you read the rest of this letter and consider each point, please remember you deserve a life free of violence. NO ONE has the right to control, emotionally or physically abuse you!
