About Us 

Abuse is not always physical. Threats of violence, destruction of property and/or pets, name calling, humiliating you in front of family and friends, putting you down – all of these things are abuse. Abuse is not caused by alcohol. It is not caused by stress. Abuse happens when one person seeks to hold power over another.

At First Step we believe that nobody should have to live with violence or the threat of violence in their lives.
