    Albuquerque Domestic Violence
    Millions of women are confronted with violence at the hands of their husbands, boyfriends, and significant others each year in our country. This devastating experience is often kept a secret. Victims of domestic violence are unwilling to tell anyon—even close friends and family. They are ashamed to let anyone know about intimate familyproblems. Victims of domestic violence come from all walks of life, cultures, ages, and income groups. If left unchecked, this type of violence will affect the entire family, destroy self-esteem, and will usually escalate into serious physical harm. If you or a loved-one is a victim of domestic violence, seek help immediately.
