Domestic Violence

Domestic violence happens in every community. In an effort to prevent or reduce the incidence of domestic violence, the South Carolina Department of Social Services contracts with local shelters and community agencies throughout the state.

If you or someone you know is a victim and you need help please call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or click here.
