- Do they put you down?
- Do they call you names?
- Do they humiliate you?
- Do they threaten to hurt you or do something to you that makes you fear for your safety?
- Do they hurt your pets?
- Do they destroy the things that are important to you?
- Do they keep you away from family or friends?
- Do they control what you do, who you see and who you interact with?
- Do they intimidate you by punching walls or throwing things?
- Do they slap, hit, push, hold you down, choke you, pull your hair, confine you, force you to have sex or threaten use of a weapon?
They are not loving you – they are controlling you and abusing you.
If someone you love is crossing the line, tell someone you can trust.

This is where I came a few years ago with my two small girls to escape a truly abusive, dangerous situation. I credit the YWCA with giving me my life back
YWCA is a blessing to many women near and far. I personally needed help after being in a violent relationship. The staff were so compassionate and helpful, which helped me heal and get back on my feet. The YWCA is and always will be a temple of healing for women in Wheeling.
The YWCA Wheeling provides critical resources to the Ohio Valley and incredible programming created to empower and engage! Top notch leadership too.
Amazing women doing amazing things!
Very safe. The staff are angels.
