Our Mission and Vision

Education

Education is vital in communities where Domestic Violence and Gun Violence is prevalent. Our community education programs will shed light on the issues of domestic/gun violence and abuse and raise awareness of the challenges a victim faces in reaching out for help.

Counseling

Providing counseling to victims of domestic/gun violence is a highly important. Domestic violence survivors are at a high risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse or stress-related mental health conditions. Survivors can have hurtful memories or flashbacks, fear or a sense of danger that they cannot overcome.

Transitioning

By assisting victims find transitional housing NCHWOW will attempt to provide a secure and supportive living situation, counseling and a network to community services empowering battered individuals to achieve an independent lifestyle.

Domestic & Gun Violence

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence occurs when one person in an intimate relationship exercises power and control over the other through a pattern of intentional behaviors, including psychological, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. There is no way to define a “typical” victim of domestic violence-–it can affect anyone from any socioeconomic, demographic, geographic, or educational background.

While most people are able to recognize an abusive relationship when it involves physical violence, relationships involving psychological or emotional abuse are more subtle, but no less destructive. If allowed to continue, these behaviors can escalate to include more physically dangerous abuse over time.

What is Gun Violence?

Gun Violence occurs when a firearm is used to threaten, cause injury, or cause death.  It is the intentional use of physical force or power whether that be threatened or actual harm, against yourself, another person or against a group/community.
