Domestic violence can take on many forms including verbal abuse, nonverbal abuse (psychological abuse, mental abuse, or emotional abuse), sexual abuse, stalking (online and in person), economic abuse, or spiritual abuse. Since abusive behaviors and acts of violence are not isolated occurrences, it’s important to understand these different forms of violence because they often intersect with one another. If you need help, call our 24/7 hotline at (757) 251-0144. #samhouse #samhousestrong #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAwarenessMonth

Samaritan House

Today marks the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

This month is for the survivors of violence. Whether it happened one week ago or 20 years ago.

This month is for the friends and family who have lost a loved one when violence turned fatal.

This month is for the police, EMT and first responders who respond to thousands of calls in our community each year for domestic violence incidents.

This month is for the children who watch in fear as the violence erupts in the place that is supposed to be a safe zone.

This month is for the helpers. The counselors, doctors, case managers, victim advocates, attorneys, intake professionals, crisis experts and support staff who help in the healing journey for survivors.

This month is for the man, woman or child currently suffering in silence, who is scared of what is on the other side of reaching out for help.

This month we are here as a community to stand together and say: You are not alone. Love shouldn't hurt. And we are here for you.

Help us #paint757purple this October to break the silence around domestic violence.

Make a donation by texting "SAM" to 50155 or visit our partner businesses below to purchase a mask or donate your spare change.

Our Story

Samaritan House is Hampton Roads’ trusted violence resource offering services to stop violence with education and training, safety planning and court assistance; and services to heal violence with counseling, support groups, children’s programs and more. Samaritan House is Virginia's largest emergency housing provider serving the community since 1984. We are serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking as well as individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We are the official nonprofit partner organization in the Hampton Roads Human Trafficking Task Force. Our administrative office is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and accredited through the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. We operate over ten emergency safe houses throughout Hampton Roads, and serve residents across the entire region. Victim Advocacy The Victim Advocacy Program helps families and individuals protect themselves physically and legally through referrals, one-on-one intervention, court accompaniment, and counseling. Advocates help design safety and prevention strategies and make connections with community resources. All non-shelter Victim Advocacy services are accessible by calling the Crisis Hotline: (757) 430-2120. Education & Outreach While Samaritan House is dedicated to providing immediate services and shelter to clients in need, we are equally as devoted to the prevention of domestic violence and homelessness in our community. Our Victim Advocate and Prevention Education programs present free workshops and trainings to middle school, high school and college students; the medical community; law enforcement; the faith-based community; civic organizations; the military; and the general public. We host awareness campaigns throughout the year and participate in legal advocacy efforts on issues related to domestic violence and homeless prevention. Community Support Group Survivor Support Group meets on Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. For more information, or to join the support group, contact Samaritan House office at 757-631-0710.

You all have not given us a bag in ages and I have things I'd like to donate. I have older bags from you I can use, I just never know whenever your pickups are. For some reason no one has given us a bag on our door in at least a month. I'm in the Kings Grant area. I do not use Facebook much. I tried to email the email on your website but no response. Please contact me at [email protected] with your response, otherwise I will have to give to someone else, and these are nice clothes and I'd like the women to receive them.
Happy Thanksgiving to All!!! Miss you all very much! And its freezing here in DC!!

Good morning. Would you please ask volunteers/employees not to walk through mulched gardens as a short cut when walking through neighborhoods delivering white bags?

What about the same bully being a member of this group, watching what I do & say. No protection. I can't speak out. The bully will retaliate. No safe haven from a bully. People find it important to inform them of what I do. So I am always hiding..
