Domestic violence is the establishment of control and fear in a relationship through physical, sexual, emotional, and/or financial abuse. While they certainly want the abuse to stop, many women choose to stay in abusive relationships because they do not want their relationship to end or may feel that they do not have any other options.
Women remain in or return to abusive relationships because their partners threaten to harm them and their loved ones if they attempt to leave. Commonly, women choose to leave when they become convinced that their life is at risk or that their children are in danger.
At Shaquille Clark Foundation, you will find advocates who will listen to your experiences without judgement and who will offer you options and support while you make choices for yourself and your family.
We operate a 24-hour domestic and dating violence hotline. Calling 470-629-7987 can be the first step toward a safer life. If you are in an abusive relationship, please call to speak with an advocate.
If you suspect that someone you know is living in an abusive relationship, please let them know you are concerned for their safety and encourage them to contact us.
Services are free, and we keep all calls confidential.
From infants to seniors, and everyone in between, we provide programs and resources to address the needs of the whole family.
