A full-service domestic and sexual violence agency serving the Grand Traverse area.
What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is an escalating pattern of abuse in which one person in an intimate relationship does a variety of things to control another person. (By “intimate” we mean marriage, dating, or former partners.) Physical abuse is probably what most people think of with domestic violence, but it is just ONE of MANY ways that your partner might try to gain power and control in your relationship.
The Women’s Resource Center offered me information and resources that were extremely helpful, but the affirmation that I was strong enough, smart enough and capable, through counseling obtained through WRC, was truly instrumental in moving forward from a very abusive relationship. I am grateful that they were there 13 years ago for me and that they are still helping so many other people.– Kim, Domestic Assault Survivor
