At its core, domestic abuse is about power and control. Consequently, men often find themselves as victims. Social stigma and stereotypes compound their victimization and further isolate them from accessing the help they need to stay safe.

The YWCA’s goal is to keep victims of domestic abuse safe. Those who turn to us – regardless of gender – are provided support, advocacy, and safe housing.
