Since 1992, McLeod Alliance for Victims of Domestic Violence has been providing assistance to those affected by domestic violence. We serve men, women and children throughout McLeod County. All services are free and strictly confidential.
At McLeod Alliance, our mission is to support and promote the elimination of relationship violence through education, empowerment, protection, and advocacy.
Domestic violence, or battering, is a pattern of abusive behaviors that some individuals use to control their intimate partners. Battering can include physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and other controlling or fear-inducing behaviors. Without help, domestic violence often becomes more frequent and more severe. It can lead to permanent injury and death.
REMEMBER: IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE ~ IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT
