Have You Been a Victim of Domestic Violence?

Family Violence

Southwest General offers access to the Safe Room through the Emergency Trauma Center. The free Safe Room provides a short-term, confidential accommodation for women who are victims of domestic violence. Southwest General also offers Safe Connection, a free support group, which is a fellowship of women who meet to share their experiences with domestic abuse and support each other in gaining self-confidence to make healthy decisions and overcome abuse in their lives. Ideas shared at Safe Connection meetings are meant to be suggestions only. Solutions and ideas that work for one person may not be appropriate for another person to use.

Available Resources

  • Medical - Seek help from a physician or Emergency Room. Have your injuries documented.
  • Safe Room - Go to Southwest General Health Center’s Emergency Department. Ask for temporary short-term accommodation in the Safe Room.
  • Police - Call the police for help. Provide a statement and request that the officer file a report. If needed, ask the responding officer to escort you to a friend or relative’s home, motel or shelter.
  • Safety plan - If you have to leave your home for safety, have birth certificates, social security cards, car registration, an extra set of keys, medicines, medical cards, bank account numbers, money, credit cards and a change of clothes for you and your children.

REMEMBER…You are worthy and have the right to be treated with respect by EVERYONE you come in contact with.
