One thought on “Report: Nearly Half of Domestic Violence Goes Unreported

  1. I did not report the crime of a man violently destroying my home because everyone that I spoke to told me that I would not be able to get any help for repairing the damages caused by this abuser.The people who told me this were individuals who worked at the domestic violence agency in my area, Legal Aid, and others connected with the courts. I thought that if I asked for help, that a person who has been victimized would be more likely to get help than if I did not ask for help. I have since learned that you are more likely to get help if you do not ask for help right away, but if you simply press charges without discussing your options with anyone until after you press charges.
