Domestic Abuse Intervention

Quick Escape


Is there something frightening going on in your home?

Do you feel as though you are causing someone else’s anger?

Domestic abuse occurs in over 20% of families in our community. If you are walking on eggshells, are afraid of what may happen next, or if you or members of your family are being criticized, threated or intimidated, we can help.

We offer counseling and education with a goal toward empowering individuals to create safety in their interpersonal relationships through services that may include:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Emergency housing resources
  • Counseling
  • Transition planning
  • Referrals to legal support

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911.

If you or someone you know needs help, or if shelter is needed, contact us at 248.592.2313. This confidential line is answered during business hours of 8:30 - 4:30 pm. After hours, please contact HAVEN’s 24 hour crisis line at 248.334.1274.


JCADA (Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse) is a network of more than 40 community agencies and organizations working to educate, advocate and raise awareness of this destructive issue in our community.

Nearly 20 years ago, Jewish Family Service, with the support of the Jewish Women’s Foundation, commissioned Jewish Women International to conduct a comprehensive assessment survey of attitudes, knowledge, and beliefs about domestic abuse in the Detroit Jewish community. The results of the survey helped us learn that many of the professionals and lay leaders in our community, including clergy and social service providers, had the need and desire for more expertise on this topic in order to best serve the families turning to them for help. As a result of the information revealed in this survey, JCADA was born and has since become a community-wide effort.
