All women deserve safety in their homes.

Domestic abuse is a systematic pattern of power and control for the sole purpose of manipulating a partner in an intimate relationship. It can take many forms: physical, verbal, emotional, psychological, spiritual, financial and sexual.

SHALVA offers confidential domestic abuse counseling services to the metropolitan Chicago Jewish community in a culturally-sensitive and caring environment. Our clients receive free and individualized services for as long as needed.
