Deaf Abused Women

It's that time of year again. I never forget it. Five years
ago on July 22nd, I made the decision to leave my abusive
husband. Five years ago on August 3rd, I managed the escape and
moved to a women's shelter in Ohio until it was safe for me to go
to my parents house. The memories and emotions will always be
with me.

A few days ago, I re-posted a blog from last year about abused
women being just like everyone else. At the end of the blog, I
included information on where to go for help. Now I'd like to
add to that resource. This list is specifically for abused deaf
and deaf-blind people. Even if you are deaf, there is help out
there for you. Contact one of these organizations. And always
remember that you are not alone.


For immediate help, call the National Domestic Violence hotline:
TTY 800-787-3224, 24 hours a day
