National Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) http://www.safe4all.org/
Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) is a human rights organization that provides services, publications, and training to serve those who typically fall between the cracks of domestic violence services: straight men, LBGT victims, teens, and the elderly. We promote services for all victims and accountability for all perpetrators.
Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women (DAHMW) http://www.dahmw.org/
The Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women is a national non-profit founded in 2000 in Harmony, Maine. Our agency was established to compliment the traditional domestic violence shelter programs that specialize in services for women abused by their male intimate partners. We specialize in offering supportive services to men abused by their female intimate partners. However, all who call us, whether they are male or female in a heterosexual or same sex abusive relationship are offered the same respect and support because no one deserves to be abused.

DVSN Advocates are carefully trained to support clients in identifying their own pace for change and finding appropriate interventions that meet the needs of their specific situation and level of risk. Our main objectives are to encourage clients to tell their story, assess their risk, develop a safety plan that keeps them and their children as safe as possible, and connect with appropriate community resources for help.
Court Advocates in the Concord District Court answer clients’ questions about procedures and court personnel, decipher unfamiliar and intimidating expectations, and offer non-judgmental support and encouragement. Risk assessment, safety planning, and referrals to viable, effective, and appropriate resources are crucial to the health and well being of our clients and their families during this period of heightened risk.
It helped me to see that there are other people going through the same problems. Being able to share and hear other experiences makes me stronger.
