Domestic Violence

Peace House- Domestic Violence Program

The Peace House DV program is designed to support, educate and empower domestic violence victims as they become survivors.

Our goal at Peace House is to be a support for survivors, providing them an opportunity to begin to heal from the trauma they’ve experienced and create a life of peace and stability for themselves.

What is considered Domestic Violence in Ohio?

Domestic Violence in Ohio is categorized as physical, emotional (mental/verbal) and sexual. Domestic violence occurs when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically dominate another. Domestic violence often refers to violence between spouses, or spousal abuse but can also include cohabitants and non-married intimate partners.

Please remember that all forms of domestic violence demonstrate a lack of respect and are used as a means of intimidation or control.

Every victim of domestic violence deserves an opportunity to become a survivor.
