*Trigger Warning*

"In the media, we often fixate on the act of sexual violence itself and some sort of conclusion — a success story or tragic end for the victim. But in between those moments live survivorship and trauma. In between are years of addiction and recovery, eating disorders, therapy, self-love, self-hate, court dates, yoga, and the question 'How will I teach my child to navigate this world?'"

A powerful quote from an even more powerful article.

One of the unique aspects of JCADA's services is that you do not need to have an act of violence happen to you in order to seek services. We have victims and survivors who come to us at the point of crisis, but we also have many who come to us months and even years afterwards, when they're ready to fully deal with what happened to them.

We need to have comprehensive services for all kinds of victims and survivors. That's why JCADA's services are not only 100% free, but also not time sensitive. You can come in whenever and continue coming back for our assistance until you feel empowered to live safely.

If you or someone you know is affected by power-based violence, please do not hesitate to call our free and confidential helpline at 1-877-88-JCADA(52232).

Technological abuse can be a huge aspect of an abusive relationship and can continue to affect individuals even after they end their abusive relationship. This news special shows how the digital world can be used by abusers through hijacking and hiding cameras in smoke detectors, thermostats, cell phones, and lights.

These methods of abuse can be tormenting and individuals in the video expressed how difficult it was to know which phones and other items to use, since their abuser could have access to all of the technology in their house. In this video, some simple ways to protect yourself are offered such as resetting your devices, changing your passwords, and changing the security questions to your accounts.

We at JCADA help victims and survivors of this kind of abuse every day. If you'd like to help JCADA be able to support these individuals, consider donating online at
