Help Strengthen the Safety Net for Survivors

Donations help to ensure survivors of gender-based violence have the resources and options they need to heal. Along with our partner organizations, we provide 24/7 access to crisis hotlines, legal advocacy, violence prevention programs, and emergency assistance for survivors and their loved ones.

 

HELP STRENGTHEN THE SAFETY NET FOR SURVIVORS

Domestic violence refers to a pattern of harmful behaviors used by one person to maintain power and control over another within the context of a dating, family or household relationship. The types of harm that occur in relationships are not always physical; they can also be emotional, psychological, verbal, financial, economic, social, reproductive, institutional, and health-based.

Domestic violence is maintained by societal and cultural attitudes, institutions, and laws which are not consistent in naming this violence as wrong. Scroll through this page learn how The Network uses terminology and defines aspects of abuse.
