For information on protecting yourself and/or your family from physical, verbal, or emotional abuse, please refer to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). 

Your home is the place you spend the most time—where you eat, sleep, connect with family, and relax. By working to ensure that your home is a safe space, you can make your personal space a refuge for wellbeing. Your first steps are to improve the quality of your air, water, and household products, and prepare for emergencies.
