Domestic Violence Information

Dear Sugar
A friend of mine is involved in a Domestic Violence lawsuit with her husband. He's hit her multiple times. She finally left him but she's scared for her safety. He tells her that if she goes to the police again he'll kill her. I want to help her but what can I do for her? Just listening isn't enough, I need to do something. Are there any hotlines or hideouts in case he strikes again? Unsettled Ursula

Dear Unsettled Ursula
There are many local and national resources available to her. There are domestic violence hotlines in each state as well as safe houses in most counties. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence assists abused women in need. The National Domestic Violence Hotline for the U.S. and Canada (1-800-799-SAFE) might be a great and informational first phone call (it might help you find a local resource). Your friend is very brave to leave. I am sure she's both scared of her husband and scared to be alone. Now more than ever she's going to need your support through this hard time. Let her know that if she is in danger or is threatened again, she should immediately dial 911.
