Taking a Stand Against Domestic Violence
Nearly every community in America, no matter how safe it may seem, is affected by domestic violence. Every year, millions of individuals – both adults and children – find their lives shattered by the effects of domestic violence; yet despite the dangers of living with an abuser, many victims find themselves financially unable to take the first legal steps that can help them end the violence and leave their abusive relationships behind.
Are You Safe is a non-profit organization composed of Tampa-area attorneys dedicated to providing domestic violence victims with the legal services they need to finally escape from their abusive and controlling relationships.
Our volunteer attorneys and legal staff help victims of domestic violence break free from the cycle of abuse by guiding them through the legal processes that can help them regain control of their lives. Are You Safe volunteers assist domestic violence victims in obtaining restraining orders – also known as injunctions for protection – that can help keep them safe from further abuse, and we provide free legal representation at the final hearing regarding the order. Our volunteer staff is uniquely positioned to provide the continued guidance domestic violence victims need to help them re-establish themselves as confident, capable members of the community.
