The goal of this web site, is to become a one-stop resource for victims of domestic violence and abuse. When in a crisis, time is of the essence to find valuable information quickly. Please join us in this effort to minimize the research for those who need answers now. Donating via Paypal is fast, secure, and free. Thank you very much!


When all else has failed, and you feel no other option but to leave an abusive relationship, you are on the road to recovery. Your head and your heart won't agree with your decision, but you are in control. While your head is telling you to flee, your heart will be begging you to stay-give it one more chance. But you have listened to your heart many times, and still you came out on the losing end. You now decide, it is time to listen to reason.

During your planning stages to create a new life for yourself, you will be overwhelmed with many decisions that must be made. You may need to find a job, get assistance with childcare, pet care, food, clothing and shelter, etc. Trying to stay safe, and look ahead can be very confusing and scary. But if you are determined to make a life for yourself, and it is safe to do so, this web site will provide much needed information for your new journey.


The first and most important resource should be a call to your church leaders. Unfortunately, help from our churches is not always available. It is sad to say, but God does provide help just the same. Even if you are not a Christian, the information provided will be useful to you as well. Below are a list of links that you will find helpful.

This is an official U.S. government website. And it lists over 1,000 government programs and benefits that may fit your present needs. This link, http://www.govbenefits.gov/, will bring you to a screen where you could search for government benefits. On this page, you have the option of clicking on the "Start Here" button, or using the "Quick Search" option. This site also allows you to enter your email address for future updates.

Ok, let's say that you are in need of childcare support. When you click on the "Quick Search" option and choose Child Care/Child Support-the next page will bring you to, http://www.govbenefits.gov/govbenefits_en.portal. This page will list various benefits, and a button to click for determining eligibility. You will be able to select the state in which reside, and view the program names in alphabetical order.


One such benefit is the Head Start program for children ages 3-5 years of age. Head Start was developed to “assist low-income preschool children and their families with developmental services.” You will also find assistance for employment, and self-sufficiency goals that will outline a working plan for your success in securing employment. Please note the program requirements, as you will have to be a resident of that state, parent or primary caregiver, and your household income may not exceed a certain amount.

The income requirements are based upon certain criteria such as how many people reside in your household. This link will also list items such as immunizations grants, preschool grants for children with disabilities, social services and tax benefits for adoptive parents, etc.
