Here are a few resources to help if you find yourself in this type of situation:
EndItNow.org - is a global initiative to raise awareness and advocate for the end of violence around the world.It aims to mobilize Seventh-day Adventists around the world and invites other community groups to join in to resolve this worldwide issue.
The Dynamics of Domestic Violence - a helpful booklet with good information and resources.
San Joaquin County Resources - click here for information about a shelter or other community services available in San Joaquin County or proper procedures for a victim.
Batterer Intervention Project - resources for men (or others) who use violence.
