Small Steps

Getting out of an abusive relationship doesn’t usually happen quickly.
Being supportive takes patience.

Helping with small steps is the most effective approach. If your friend is clearly in danger, please call 911.

We can show you ways to help friends & family feel safe and supported.

Based on the story you just watched, what small step might you take next with your friend?
