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.

Find Local Support

FAP works to prevent and respond to domestic abuse in the military community.

Learn about options for support, which include:

  • Safety planning
  • Restricted/confidential reporting option: preserves victim privacy and limits who is involved (with certain limitations)
  • Unrestricted reporting option: allows victims to ensure command and law enforcement are informed and involved
  • Emergency services (if needed)
  • Counseling and emotional support
  • Housing and shelter
  • Financial and legal services
  • Military or civilian protection order (can also protect pets), if needed

No matter what your situation is, help is available. You don’t have to go through this alone. Your local FAP staff can help you understand your options for reporting abuse. They can also help you document your abuse, create a safety plan and connect you with a network of support.
