Safety Plan


Whether you are currently with your abuser or not,
a safety plan can reduce your risk of being harmed.
The better you plan for your departure, the safer you will be.


  • Call the Emergencynumber if you are in danger or hurt.
  • Arrange a signal with a neighbor to call police if needed.
  • If you have children and your children are old enough, arrange a secret signal with them to let them know when to run to neighbors or call police.
  • Memorize the number of a Domestic Violence Help Line Memorize the number and location of your local police precinct to keep it on you.
  • Hide some money(for example at the bottom of your sock/shoe) You may need it later on for a phone call, taxi, food, etc.
  • Hide a spare car key and house key.
  • Gather your paperwork. Collect passports, green cards, Social Security cards, birth certificates, marriage certificates, children's immunization records, drivers license, car registration, bank accounts, order of protection, custody papers, documentation of abuse (photos of injuries, medical records) and other important documents.
  • If possible, know your abuser's Social Security number, date and place of birth, etc. You may need this information later on.
  • If you have an an order of protection, carry a copy with you at all times.
  • If you have custody papers, carry a copy with you at all times.
  • Keep a bag packed and well hidden with basic necessities for you and your children.
  • If you have a baby, don't forget to pack diapers and formula.
  • If you leave and have an older child, try to take something the child is attached to such as a favorite doll.
  • If you can, document your abuse. Take photos of injuries, get copies of medical records, write down each incident.
