Get Help

Posted By admin On July 29, 2010 @ 3:12 pm In | No Comments

If you, a family member, or a friend needs help…

Remember, no one asks to be abused. Victims are not at fault, the perpetrator is. Committing sexual assault or domestic violence is a crime and we need to hold individuals responsible for their criminal behavior.

Getting Help:

If you have been abused, your immediate safety is first. If you are in danger, try to go to a safe place. Reach out for support. You deserve it!

If you are in immediate danger, call 911 and ask for emergency assistance. MCADSV does not provide direct services. Please call your local program [1] or one of the National Hotlines below. If you want more information, click on their names to go to their associated Web sites.
