UN Women has called it "the shadow pandemic," and António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General has said, "Peace is not just the absence of war. Many women under lockdown for #COVID19 face violence where they should be safest: in their own homes."
Domestic violence can impact anyone. Human Options provides safety, healing, and a way forward to victims of domestic violence in Orange County. Learn from experts on how to spot abuse and how to help.
Starting with a crisis hotline, four pioneering women conceived Human Options in 1981 because they believed that the women and children of Orange County deserved to live violence-free lives. Their desire evolved into a groundbreaking perspective: relationship violence threatens everyone in Orange County. Nearly four decades later, HO continues to ignite social change by leading collective county-wide responses in service of those affected by abuse. Ultimately, we are empowering every person and family in Orange County to experience lives free from fear.
