Like most people struggling with domestic violence, Native American women have many reasons for staying in – or staying quiet about – abusive situations: fear of more, or worse, beatings; lack of money or a safe place to go; concern about losing children; fear of being alone.
But, we understand that Native women may have other barriers that can make abusive situations even more complex – realities that can make it hard to talk to someone about what’s going on or to reach out for help and support.
As a sovereign nation, the Penobscot Indian Nation has its own legal and social services institutions and practices.
We work to understand how these issues play out in daily life, so we’re able to help you with safety planning and domestic violence prevention.
We offer native and non-native assistance in both tribal and non tribal venues. Please call our free, confidential hotline at 1.800.863.9909. We’re ready to listen and to help you find support.
