You are Not Alone...

You do not have to go through this alone. Reach out for help to a minister, counselor or Rise Above Violence Advocates. Talking with a victim advocate can help you understand your feelings.

NO ONE deserves to be abused or assaulted. You did nothing to deserve abuse. You are a victim of a violent crime. You need not feel ashamed, guilty or embarrassed to ask for support.
