Home is an important sanctuary for anyone, whether you’re in a relationship, single, or not even looking. It’s a space to make your own where you feel free to express yourself, comfortable decompressing, and most of all, safe and in control. No matter what is going on, safety at home is important.
If you’re experiencing dating abuse, home can be more important than ever as a place to escape and be alone while you plan your next steps. Unfortunately, it can also be a site of enormous fear and stress if you’re uncomfortable or don’t feel safe.
While there’s no single solution to reaching safety at home, there are many useful resources available to support you as you work on a safety plan , reduce potential risks around your house, and make the place you live a safer place to love.
