Pillars of Support
First, we work with individuals to help them develop secure communications, which is often the first time they’ve talked to loved ones in years. This starts to break the cycle of control and isolation, and it gives them a voice once again. Then, we start helping the individual plan plan their escape, even with their children and pets. Our support doesn’t end until they finally feel safe again.
Everyone needs a place they feel safe. We work with the person’s support system to help them protect their loved one by concealing their location and providing assistance without alerting the abuser. We also work with domestic violence shelters and safe houses, social services, and advocacy groups to help them protect their clients. We provide the security layer so they can focus on what they do best.
Law enforcement is often the first contact victims of domestic violence have with a larger mechanism that exists to help them. Unfortunately, many officers and agencies report that they’re not equipped to address even some of the fundamental security concerns affecting victims of domestic violence. We provide assistance and training to help close the knowledge gap between law enforcement and abusers.
