Making a safety plan involves identifying the steps you can take to increase your safety and helps to prepare you and your children in advance for the possibility of further violence. You do not deserve to be abused. If you are currently living in an abusive relationship, are thinking about leaving, or have recently left, there are steps you can take to increase your safety.
