Afortunadamente, ese ya no es el caso. Hay muchas organizaciones con la misma misión central de proporcionar recursos y herramientas para capacitar a los sobrevivientes para vivir una vida libre de violencia. Si no vive cerca del Condado de Johnson, o si tiene algún problema además de la violencia doméstica, quizás alguna de las organizaciones a continuación puede ayudar:
