Welcome to Adult Services! At the
of NAADV we have a team of experienced caseworkers who support women,
men, and families experiencing any form of domestic abuse.
NAADV defines domestic violence within four categories,
- Physical - including any form of physical assault such
as punching, pushing, kicking, biting, pulling hair, burning stabbing,
and in the worst cases murder.
- Emotional - including intimidation, threats, harassment,
stalking, damage to personal items and property, and allowing children
to witness domestic violence.
- Sexual - including rape, sexual assault, unwanted exposure
to pornography, and any form of force or coercion to commit sexual acts
that are not acceptable to the person.
- Economic - including preventing someone from getting
or keeping a job, not letting a person have knowledge of or access to
family income (i.e. welfare benefits), taking money and/or making someone
ask for money.
