Domestic violence is a pattern of behaviors used to maintain power and control over a partner. It can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. The abuse often includes the use of physical and sexual violence, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and economic deprivation. Sometimes it is called family violence, dating violence, intimate partner violence or domestic abuse. Whatever name it is given, Community Safety Network is available to help.

Sexual assault, or sexual violence, is any forced or coerced sexual activity committed against a person without consent. Rape is one form of sexual violence. Being a victim of sexual assault is not your fault. Nothing in what you say, the way you look, where you are, or who you are with gives anyone else the right to hurt you. Community Safety Network is available to offer free and confidential information, support and most of all hope, to survivors of sexual violence.
