First Step A Response to Domestic Violence

THE STORY:

At First Step, we believe that no one should have to live with violence or the threat of violence in their lives. 

Domestic violence or intimate partner violence is not always physical. Threats of violence, destruction of property and/or pets, name calling, humiliating you in public or in front of family and friends, isolating you from family and friends, putting you down, and preventing you from working or sabotaging your job are all forms of abuse. Abuse is not caused by drugs or alcohol but can be the cause of abuse escalating. It is not caused by stress. Abuse happens when one person seeks to hold power and control over another person.


 “If First Step didn’t exist, I would not have gotten the help I needed that staff provided to me here at the shelter. I would probably be at an unsafe place if I didn’t come to this shelter.” 


 “Without First Step, I would not have had a place to bring my children and myself and would have stayed in the abusive relationship simply to have a roof over our heads.”
