Incidents of domestic violence are on the rise as victims of abuse are finding themselves ordered to shelter in place with their abusers.
Although the Texas Courts are still conducting hearings and granting orders to protect victims of domestic abuse, there is still an unmet need for immediate shelter for victims. Local women shelters are at capacity. Family, neighbors and friends are called upon to make a very difficult and brave decision to take the victims if no other option is available.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233
If you are in an emergency call 911.
For local resources call the Bay Area Turning Point at 281-338-7600.
