NYC Domestic Violence Centers

New York City offers many city-wide resources for domestic violence victims. Most centers offer legal assistance, by connecting victims with qualified attorneys who specialize in child custody and domestic violence proceedings, as well as Orders of Protection.

Emergency shelters are located throughout Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs, and provide victims and their families a safe place to live while escaping from a violent and abusive relationship. Counselors are also readily available at most centers and shelters.

Domestic violence is a very serious matter that should not be taken lightly. It is crucial to a family’s well-being if the situation is addressed as soon as possible.
