Domestic violence or “Intimate Personal Violence” (IPV) in Central Oregon is a growing problem, and some victims may not even know they are victims.

 

Laurie Hubbard, a public health nurse with Deschutes County says once they see a person they suspect is being abused, just asking some well chosen questions can reveal their situation.

 

"We might ask; does someone shame or humiliate you? Do you feel safe and healthy in your relationship? Does anyone threaten you or hurt you or threaten to hurt you? Does anyone control or restrict your whereabouts, your money, your friendships, your cellphone use? Some of these questions lead to the answers that might direct us to give people information about services."

 

Hubbard says one in four women and one in seven men are victims of IPV.

 

She says the non-profit "Saving Grace" is the primary place victims are referred to for a safe haven and information on violence prevention.

 

And she adds that if you know of someone who may be in a violent or controlling situation - being an open line of communication and support for them if your best action.
