Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Posted by City of Philadelphia Office of Children and Families on October 5, 2021

Domestic violence is complex and dangerous. It affects all classes, races, marital statuses, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Domestic violence is more than physical abuse. It is a pattern of behaviors that one partner uses against the other to gain power and control in the relationship. These behaviors may include isolation, financial deprivation, or stalking. They can also include emotional abuse and threats to hurt them, their children, or their pets. 

Philadelphia envisions a city free of domestic violence.
