The Pima County / Tucson Women's Commission recently released a new and revised Resource Guide on Domestic Abuse, Assault and Violence made possible through a $5,000 grant from Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall's office. The funds for its printing came from seizure of criminals funds and not taxpayer dollars. Attorneys at Southern Arizona Legal Aid spent much time checking the document's accuracy. Jan Vasilius of Kaimas Foundation was also a sponsor.

It is a a very comprehensive 50 page guide full of resources for a person seeking assistance from any domestic violence situation, whether married, in a partnership or dating, straight or gay. Having worked in this field for a number of years first as a staff attorney for an Americorps DV victims project, then as a DV Commissioner & Interim Director of the now defunct Domestic Violence Commission, I can attest to the seriousness of domestic abuse, and how difficult it is to leave the abuser.
