SEMO Family Violence council

Southeast Missouri Family Violence Council is a non profit organization which offers free alternatives for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence and their children. Through these efforts, we attempt to empower victims to take back control!

“They come in, and we’re the resource queens.”

According to Carroll, many victims of domestic violence have never had checking accounts, driver’s licenses, saving accounts, and don’t know how to register to vote or drive a car.

The goal is to show the victims they can be independent— a hard idea for people who may have been repeatedly told by the abuser they’re worthless, they’ll never be anything, or they’re stupid.
