    Leaving Home

    A bird escaping from open water


    If you are a woman experiencing violence you should have an escape plan on how to get out of the house.

    • Make sure you have important documents
    • Save money in secret when you can
    • Find a safe place to go: friends, shelter, family
    • Keep extra keys and clothes with friends
    • Secure transportation
    • Work out signal system with a friend
    • Go when he is gone
    • Don't tell him you are leaving
    • Create an excuse to slip away
