Every couple experiences relationship challenges.
No matter how tough times get, commit to living by core values and working through problems in a healthy way. Don't let individual or family stress escalate into domestic abuse.

It starts with respect.

Domestic violence is never OK. It goes against all relationship core values.
No one deserves abuse, and anyone can be a victim. Abuse can be verbal, physical, emotional or sexual. Some of the most hurtful and long-lasting forms of abuse may never leave a bruise. 

Safety of victims and children is imperative, because domestic violence can be lethal and sometimes fatal.

Have the courage to speak up and do the right thing.

If you or someone you know is being abused, call law enforcement immediately.
Healthy relationships don't just happen, they take time and effort. Family violence hurts children, and its effects can cripple generations.

Exposure to domestic violence can have a long-term impact on children's health, behavior, and ability to learn.

The Family Advocacy provides a variety of helping tools that support the military community.

The Family Advocacy Program can help with developing healthy relationship skills and addressing common relationship challenges to prevent domestic abuse.

Domestic violence thrives when we're silent.

Get help, speak up, and reach out. Here's what you can do to help end domestic violence: Wear purple in support of domestic violence awareness month, participate in community and Robins Triple Ribbon Month activities to raise awareness.

Have the courage to speak up and do the right thing and stay safe through healthy relationships.
