Everyone deserves to be safe.
- Be prepared to get away, if necessary. Plan the safest time to get away.
- Plan with your children. Make sure they know a safe place for them (a room with a lock, a neighbor’s house). Reassure them that their job is to stay safe, not to protect you.
- Think about who you can call, where you can go, and how you can get there.
- Keep things you will need, if you have to leave quickly: house and car keys; important papers (social security cards and birth certificates for you and the children, driver’s license); cash, food stamps, credit cards, checkbook; medications for you and the children; spare set of clothes and personal items such as glasses; important phone numbers and addresses (friends, relatives, police, Caring Unlimited).
You DO NOT have the power to change your abuser.
You Do have the power to make you and your children safe.
You are NOT Alone.
You are NOT to blame.
