NH Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence Devel. VISTA
The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and its 13 member crisis center programs provide free and confidential services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in all parts of NH, including underserved and under resourced counties. The majority of domestic violence victims served by the NHCADSV are classified as low income or very low income (200% of other poverty level or below.) It is also important to note that even if an individual’s spouse/partner makes income well above the poverty level, victims of domestic violence often do not have access to their abusive partner’s income and thereby are considered living at the poverty level. It is not uncommon for a victim to receive an “allowance” from their abusive spouse or partner to support the needs of the victim and the children, including needs-based items such as groceries and toiletries. This tactic is used by abusers to paralyze victims so that they are unable to leave the relationship. According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, 1 in 10 women and nearly 1 in 25 men having experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner missed work or school as a result of the abuse. Furthermore, “between 21-60% of victims of domestic violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from abuse” The lack of housing, job skills, and limited capacity to earn and manage their own financial resources undermine their self-esteem and causes a lack of confidence in their ability to manage and cope with financial problems. This increases the likelihood that of a victim remaining in unsafe and dangerous relationships. The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence creates safe and just communities through advocacy, prevention and empowerment of anyone affected by sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking.
