Every woman and child has the right to be safe. Violence is a crime. Evidence indicates that women are much more likely to be victims of domestic violence, which has enormous impacts on the physical and mental health of women and children.
This is a complex issue and women experiencing domestic violence need individual support and access to a variety of services. The effects of violence can be felt for many years. There is a range of services available in Fort Worth and the Mid-Cities that can help women make changes and choices for the future.
