Statistics show domestic violence gets worse the longer a victim stays with an abusive partner.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, there are ways to get help.

Local outreach programs want victims to know there are people out there ready to help you, and right now is always the best time to get help.

If you need help, you can stop by the Latimer House in Grand Junction at 1003 Main Street.

You can also contact the District Attorney's office to pursue a restraining order.

They'll help you get a plan together to get out of your situation, and if it's an emergency, call their 24–hour crisis line at 241-6704.
