Violence in the home

Christmas can be a particularly stressful time for victims of domestic abuse or its survivors. Although it’s a year round problem for many women and families, the added pressures of financial difficulties and spending long amounts of time with an abusive partner or family member during the holiday season can cause considerable stress and anxiety.
