EVERY RELATIONSHIP VIOLENCE-FREE

How Domestic Violence Impacts Kids

Research indicates that children who witness domestic violence are more likely to suffer from anxiety, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, poor grades, poor judgment, violent outbursts, unhealthy relationships with peers and much more. The irrefutable truth is this: Children, regardless of education and socio-economic status, become “at risk” whenever there is violence in their homes; however, with the help of trained professionals like those at Hubbard House, there is hope for healing.

When a child enters the Hubbard House shelter they receive an initial needs assessment and, with their in-shelter parent as a partner, a course is chartered to get the child from where she or he is, to where she or he wants and needs to be. Customized services are key and may include counseling, children’s groupsattending the Children's Therapeutic Learning Center and/or receiving educational support from certified teachers. 

In every instance, whether a child is in shelter or receiving services at our Outreach Center, he or she is helped to understand that the violence is not his or her fault. He or she is also helped to cope with the trauma experienced, to stay safe at home and in the community, to develop a positive sense of self and to manage anger and conflict without violence. In the end, this empowers them all to live better lives and decreases the chance the violence will be repeated in their generation.
