Steps to End Domestic Violence

formally known as Women Helping Battered Women

We are a prevention and advocacy organization dedicated to helping those who have experienced domestic violence achieve safety and independence. We offer a variety of services tailored to the individual needs and goals of each person we serve. Because they are designed to address the unique dynamics of intimate partner violence, our services are generally not appropriate for situations involving violence between roommates, household members or family members who are not intimate partners.  As is best practice with working with those who have experienced domestic violence, we operate using an empowerment model. This means that those accessing our services decide what actions they will take – we don’t mandate a particular process and all of our services are voluntary. This approach gives control to those using our services, with our staff providing support and guidance along the way.  Calling our hotline, which operates 24 hours/day, 7 days/week is the first step to accessing services and support through Steps to End Domestic Violence.
