Domestic Violence Awareness Month

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Vermont, 50% of homicides are domestic violence related.

SafeSpace works to end violence in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected people. We provide information, support, referrals, and advocacy to LGBTQH survivors of violence.

In conjunction with the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, SafeSpace is able to connect survivors to the Legal Assistance for Victims Clinic (LAV).

LAV provides services and representation to survivors, free of charge. Their legal team can provide support pertaining to:

  • Restraining orders- both Relief from Abuse Orders and Orders Against Stalking

  • Custody Issues

  • Name change/social security number change, needed as a result of violence

We are here for you.

Advocates are available to meet in person or answer your call Monday - Thursday 10a - 6p and Friday 10a - 2p. 

You can reach us at our Support Line

Local: 802-863-0003
