Abuse Intervention Programs
The House of Ruth’s Abuse Intervention Program aims to increase the safety of victims of intimate partner violence by holding batterers accountable and teaching non-violent, relationship skills. Those accepted into the program are required to attend a weekly 90-minute group session for a total of 28 weeks. Groups for men are co-facilitated by a male/female team and are conducted 4 days each week, morning, afternoon, and evening.
Call 410-554-8479 to speak to a counselor or schedule an appointment.
Counselors are available Monday-Thursday from 10 am – 4 pm.
Victim Contact Program
The Gateway Project contacts victims by letter and telephone in order to provide information about the project, offer safety planning assistance, crisis counseling, referral to services and to obtain victim input on abuser behavior. The safety of the victim is always the priority when initiating contact or using any information provided by a victim. Abusers are required to provide written permission in order for program staff to discuss case specifics with the victim. If you are a victim or partner of a man currently or previously in our program, and would like to speak to someone, please contact us.
