- Our Work
Children who witness partner abuse are deeply affected by what they see. Imagine watching the two people you love most in the world fighting. Your father yells, throws objects, hits, pushes and hurts your mother. She in turn forgives him. Everything loves for a while but the violence begins again. This cycle repeats itself over and over again.
Agencies and organizations that can help are listed on our website under the Get Help Now button and on the Abuse Help Lines page in the front of your Direct West phone book.
