Domestic Violence Services
Intimate partner domestic violence includes physical abuse – ranging from shoving, slapping, punching and stabbing – and can also be psychological, including threats or other verbal abuse. The abuser uses power and control to intimidate, isolate, threaten, blame, and coerce.
If your intimate partner is abusive to you, your children, or someone else in the household, or if someone you know is being abused, TAP’s Domestic Violence Services, which are free to all, can help with the following:
- Emergency assistance and transportation
- Emergency relocation assistance
- Crisis intervention
- Legal advocacy
- Court preparation and accompaniment
- Support group
If you think you’ve been abused, or that someone you know may be being abused, please call the TAP-DVS hotline.
Our daytime telephone number is (540) 283‑4813.
For after-hours emergencies, call (540) 580‑0775. A counselor is available evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays at the emergency number.
Hearing impaired persons can contact us using Virginia Relay. Just dial 7-1-1 and give the Virginia Relay Communications Assistant the number you need to reach.
