Safe+Sound Somerset

Our mission is to empower survivors of domestic abuse and engage the community to break the cycle of violence. Domestic abuse is a pattern of incidents of controlling, threatening, degrading and violent behavior by a partner. It is very common and comes in all forms, such as, emotional, physical, sexual, and financial. If you are experiencing behaviors depicting abuse, please seek help immediately and know that you are not alone.
