Violence In Your Home Is a Crime.
Here Are The Resources to Help
|If You Have A Disability and You Feel Unsafe, You Can Get Help…Do you have enough food to eat? Is your family member or caregiver treating you poorly? If you are not receiving care by the person who is supposed to take care of you or the necessities you need, you can get help today. You can call a family member or any agency below that can get you to a safer place immediately. Verbal or physical abuse isn’t acceptable treatment. You have options available despite what you may be thinking or hearing. We have a public health order in place but that doesn’t mean you have to remain in a living situation where you feel badly.
