Welcome to AWARE, Inc.

What We Do to Help End Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and              Child Abuse  

At AWARE. Inc., we provide comprehensive intervention and prevention, outreach and education regarding domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. 

What is Domestic Violence/Abuse?

Abuse in a relationship refers to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse by an abuser towards their partner that is designed to control another human being through the use of fear, humiliation, and verbal or physical assaults.  Examples of abuse include:
  • name-calling or put-downs
  • keeping a partner from contacting family or friends
  • withholding money
  • stalking
  • intimidation
  • actual or threatened physical harm
  • sexual assault
Domestic violence takes many forms and can happen all of the time, or once in a while.  An important step to help someone you know in preventing or stopping violence is to learn more about it.  Contact AWARE for more information and for available resources at 1-800-478-1090.
