Who We Are
Are you a victim of domestic violence?
- Are you ever afraid of your partner?
- Does your partner threaten to hurt you?
- Does your partner control all the money?
- Has your partner ever pushed you or shoved you, thrown things at you, or forced you to have sex?
- Does your partner stalk you and show up uninvited at your job or when you are out with friends?
If these experiences are part of your life, you are not alone and Rainbow Services is here to help. Rainbow Services has provided relief to women and children who seek to live a life free from violence since 1984. Our counselors are compassionate and experienced, and our goal is to ensure that you and your children are safe. We understand how painful it is to live with abuse and how difficult it can be to talk about your situation. You might feel hopeless, desperate, confused, and alone. You may not want to tell people about your situation because you feel afraid, ashamed, or helpless.
If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence. Domestic violence is a crime and can include physical abuse, emotional abuse, economic abuse, and sexual abuse.
Rainbow Services is here to help. We have two shelters, a 30-day emergency shelter and a transitional shelter where you and your children may remain for up to one year. We also have counseling, case management, parenting classes, life-skills classes, and several programs for your children.
You don’t have to go it alone. If you, or someone you know needs help, give us a call.
