Remember: if you’re facing family violence, you’re never to blame for the way an abusive person treats you. It’s always an abuser’s choice to use violence, and it is never your fault. But there are some steps that you can take to make life for you and your children safer.
If you live with the abuser, plan to leave the abuser, or have already left, a personal safety plan can help you — it’s a list of recommendations that can help you to protect yourself and your family.
A shelter is a safe place where you can get help, sleep and food, or even stay for a while. What kind of assistance can be provided in a particular shelter depends on each specific organization.
Unfortunately, not all countries have state and non-profit crisis centers/suites/shelters, and even where they exist, the quality of assistance and the conditions for its provision can vary greatly.
Therefore, depending on where exactly you are, the situation can be very different. If you need to get help from the specialists in a shelter or even just to stay there, it is better to find out the requirements directly from the organizations themselves. You can also try contacting religious and charitable organizations.
