Resources and Referrals

When faced with an abusive relationship, individuals often feel isolated and need to be connected with resources in the community.  Several local agencies are designed to give direction to individuals through their journey to a healthier life.

SELAH offers internet access for private searches and communication with supports in the greater community.

Education can be powerful.  Understanding the dynamics of domestic abuse helps to validate your feelings and empowers  you to see that positive change is possible.

SELAH can provide you with educational materials (books, handouts, etc) to help you grow in your understanding of problems and possible solutions.

Individual Support

Telling your story and finding a listening ear can make a huge impact on those who have been isolated and overwhelmed by domestic abuse.

SELAH offers individuals the opportunity to find clarity by processing their experience with a supportive staff member.
