abuse alternatives

Abuse Alternatives has over 30 years experience providing comprehensive, confidential services to survivors of relationship abuse/violence. Our 24-Hour Hotline provides support and access to services with a staff who specializes in dealing with relationship violence/abuse issues.

Our Mission

Abuse Alternatives, Inc. is committed to providing quality services through direct support and advocacy to the victims of domestic violence with the goal of eliminating the pattern of abusive behaviors from the lives of those individuals and their families.

It is the philosophy of Abuse Alternatives, Inc. that all humans have the right to live violent free lives, free from abuse and the threats of abuse. Abuse Alternatives, Inc. recognizes that violence within intimate relationships consists of the use of force, or threat, to achieve and maintain control over others. We also acknowledge that physical, verbal and sexual violence are violations of basic human rights and, therefore, are committed to initiate and support changes in social systems and attitudes through service and education.

Abuse Alternatives, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that provides services regardless of gender, race, national origin, education, age, ability, sexual orientation, class or religious preference.

Our PayPal account will be used as a tool for those in the community to kindly donate money, via our website, to help fund the causes we support to help stop domestic violence.

Our web site can give you information on a variety of topics, including help in creating a safety plan or volunteer opportunities. You can also send a confidential email to us through our contact page

We can help you get on your feet and get out of an abusive relationship.

Remember, violence is NOT a normal way to work out disagreements
