United Against Domestic Abuse
If your partner’s actions make you feel uncomfortable or hurt you in any way, you are not alone. We can help you.
The right to feel safe
Everybody deserves a life free from fear, control or harm. When it comes to domestic abuse, it can happen to anyone ─ and each person’s situation is different. The Family Advocacy Program is committed to supporting victims, service members and their families impacted by domestic abuse. FAP will always work with those experiencing abuse to show them their options for next steps, encouraging them to choose their own path.
