Our Mission

SOAR is a resource and referral center that empowers survivors of domestic violence to seek safety and rise above trauma and abuse.

Domestic violence is a pattern of controlling and abusive behavior by one partner in an intimate relationship with the intent of establishing dominance and control over another.

Domestic violence does not always involve physical abuse or injury. Instead, the abuse may be emotional, verbal, psychological, or a combination, and it often
worsens over time.


Whereas the majority of victims are women and children, domestic violence can also happen to men and can occur regardless of age, race, economic or social status, educational level, or sexual orientation.

Whatever your story, SOAR’s free, confidential services offer support, guidance,
advocacy, and education to help women, men, and families make decisions for
a better future.
