WARNING: Your computer use and internet activity could be monitored and tracked. Only access critical information from a safe computer.

Domestic violence, or intimate partner violence, is complex and dangerous. Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of:

  • Class.
  • Race.
  • Marital status.
  • Sexual orientation.
  • Gender identity.

Domestic violence is more than just physical abuse. It is a pattern of behaviors that a partner uses against the other person to gain and maintain power and control in the relationship.

These behaviors can include:

  • Isolation.
  • Financial deprivation.
  • Stalking.
  • Emotional abuse.
  • Threats to harm partner, children, or pets.

If you believe you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911.

If you think that your relationship is abusive, or if you think someone you know is being abused, call the 24-hour Philadelphia domestic violence hotline at (866) 723-3014.

You can also access these local resources for people affected by domestic violence. All resources are free and available to all Philadelphians.
