Help save a life with a caring conversation.
As you prepare to talk to a victim, you have their safety and best interest at heart. But sometimes, what you want for the victim may not be what’s best and safest for them at that time.
It’s important that the victim get to lead in the decision making on what’s safest for themselves and their children. Doing something like calling the police without their consent can take that control away from the victim.
The best role you can take in these situations is to educate yourself about the resources that are available and connect the victim to the free, confidential support of trained advocates, like those at Hubbard House. The victim knows what is best and safest for themselves and their children, so it’s important they lead the process of finding safety.
