Pastoral Resource Ministries, Inc.
Our goals are to eliminate domestic violence, empower victims, educate the public, and promote partnerships.
Statistics: Domestic Violence should not happen to anyone. The majority of Domestic Violence
victims are women.
1 in 3 women report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at
some point during their lives. More than 32 million Americans are affected by domestic violence each
year. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women.
  • Find a place you can go to if you need to leave quickly-a friend's house, family member, hotel or
    domestic violence shelter.

  • Have an idea of how you will get out of the home (a window, fire escape) and how you will get
    away (car, bus, taxi).

  • Prepare a bag that contains the following:

  • Money

  • A change of clothes

  • Spare keys and important documents (driver's license, check book, medial records, birth
    certificates, health insurance cards, etc.).

  • Keep this bag hidden or leave at a friend's or family member's house, your work, or any other
    safe place in case you need to leave in an emergency.

  • Arrange with a friend to have an "emergency phrase" that your partner will not recognize. Or
    arrange a signal with a neighbor to let them know when you are in trouble.
