In an Emergency
If you are afraid for your safety CALL 9-1-1.
Tell the dispatcher your life is in danger and you need help immediately.

If you can’t get to a phone to call 9-1-1,
LEAVE. The first thing you should do is put yourself out of harm’s way and get to a safe place or a public place where others can see you.

Anyone Can Be a Victim
Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. Domestic violence occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, or dating.

If you are being abused, REMEMBER –
  1. You are not alone
  2. It’s not your fault
  3. Help is available
Help is Available
If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help or would like to speak with someone about domestic violence, confidential help is available 24 hours a day by calling our help line at 425-746-1940.

Help is out there. Receiving LifeWire’s crisis line number from my friend was a gift. When the person on the other end asked me, “Are you safe?” I was overwhelmed with fear and emotions. They saved my life. I've moved on now and have a peaceful and loving home life. Now I carry extra crisis line cards with me knowing one day that card will change someone’s life like it did mine.
