Safety Planning

Leaving can be very dangerous and should be planned carefully.

 

It might be helpful to:

  • Have a packed bag ready. Keep it in a secret but accessible place.
  • Identify a neighbor you can tell about your situation. Ask them to call the police if they hear a disturbance coming from your home.
  • Devise a code word you can use with your children, family, friends and neighbor when you need them to call police.
  • Decide and plan where you will go if you leave home.
  • If you think you are in need of a safety plan,

please call our advocate at

(321) 726-8282

and ask for assistance

Serene Harbor can be reached by calling the 24-hour help line, 321-726-8282. You can find the help that you need anytime, day or night by calling this number. If you live outside Brevard County, call 800-799-SAFE (7233) to talk to an advocate at the domestic violence shelter in your area. If you are in physical danger, call 911 to reach the police. When you call Serene Harbor, an advocate will help you evaluate the degree of danger that exists in the relationship and help you prepare a safety plan to address your immediate need. Sometimes it’s difficult to realize the danger because you’ve coped so well for so long. However, it is vital that you call early when you suspect abuse so that you can come up with a safety plan to reduce the abuser’s opportunity to hurt you and your family. If you are calling Serene Harbor on behalf of a friend who may be a survivor, we encourage you to call early when you first suspect danger. The sooner a safety plan can be put in place the better!
