Resources for Victims/Survivors
If your partner or former partner is participating in the Family Peace Initiative BIP, there are some things we’d like you to know:
- Expect contact from us. We WANT to talk with you and understand your perspective, situation, and relationship.
- Our top priority is your safety. We will do everything we can to follow your direction on whether any information you provide us is shared with your partner. We can explain this further when we talk with you. We understand the need for your information to remain confidential for your protection.
- We want you to know what participants might learn in class. See About BIP for more information. Participants will learn skills and tools to build healthy relationships. They will be asked to take responsibility and accountability for the cruelty, violence, and abuse they have inflicted upon others, and to work toward heal from the cruelty they have experienced.
- You are welcome to contact us if you would like more information or have any questions at all. You can reach our Victim/Partner Liaison at (785) 350-2858, ext. 9.
If you’re currently experiencing violence, abuse, or cruelty and need assistance, FIND HELP HERE through the Kansas Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (KCSDV) member organizations.
If you are a victim of crime, resources and support are available to you through the Office of Victim Services through the Office of the Kansas Attorney General. Visit their website for more info.
