Domestic Violence and Crime Victims Services

Does your partner:

    • Hit, slap, kick, shove, or bite you?
    • Strangle or “choke” you?
    • Threaten to hurt you or your children?
    • Prevent you from seeing friends/family?
    • Make you feel bad about yourself?
    • Call you derogatory racial or sexual names?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a victim of Domestic Violence. We are here to help. You are not alone.

In 1992, Catholic Charities of Fulton and Montgomery Counties began their commitment to helping victims of Domestic Violence in Montgomery County. A few years later,  we began serving innocent victims of other crimes, such as assault, robbery, arson, and DWI, with assistance of Office of Victims Services. The following free and confidential services are available to ALL victims:

Safe Harbour Program

Montgomery County Safe Harbour Program implements a system-level approach within existing child welfare and allied youth-serving systems, including Runaway-Homeless Youth programs (RHY), Probation, Persons In Need of Supervision (PINS), Youth Bureaus, and other critical partners. This approach leverages existing system strengths to create a more effective and efficient response to youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation or trafficking, or who are vulnerable to it.
