Six things to do if you think someone you know is experiencing domestic violence:


Call the police if you see or hear violence in progress.


Learn about domestic violence services in your community like those provided by The Wellspring or Family Justice Center.


If you have a friend or co-worker who is afraid of their partner or who is being hurt, offer your support and refer them to The Family Justice Center at (318) 998‑6030.


Give time, resources or money.

  • Distribute domestic violence awareness materials at your workplace, school or church.
  • Arrange for informational and educational presentations or training for your church, civic, social, and professional groups.


Model a respectful attitude toward your spouse in your home, with your family, and in your workplace. Avoid behaviors that demean or control others.


Build support among your colleagues and neighbors that abusive behavior and language is not tolerated.
