Help for Victims of Intimate Partner Violence

House of Ruth Maryland is one of the nation’s leading intimate partner violence centers, helping thousands of battered women and their children find the safety and security that so many of us take for granted.

Intimate partner violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, ability or gender, and can take many forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional, economic, and psychological abuse.

It impacts individuals, families, workplaces, and communities. Since intimate partner violence is framed within the global issue of violence against women, it is shaped and supported by societal, familial, and cultural norms and is complicated by the intersection of other cultural oppressions.
