Nobody should live with violence or in fear of it and we take pride in our work nationally with abuse victims at all HELP locations. The commitment of HELP USA to survivors of domestic violence is highlighted through our work in New York City, where we operate housing sites specifically devoted to domestic violence survivors and their children.
