Have Abusive Behavior?

Meet Nketchi

It's so important to have a place like the Center, a safe spot, where people can go.

Are you abusing someone?

  • Take responsibility and be accountable for your actions.
  • Saying, "I'm sorry," is not enough. "Making up" is only a temporary response and does not stop further abusive incidents.
  • Recognize that you may be committing a crime. Assault is against the law, and you can be charged and/or sentenced to time in jail. You do not have the permission or right to abuse your partner.
  • See a counselor trained in LGBT domestic violence as soon as possible and attend a group for people who abuse their partners.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center has groups for those who may be at risk for domestic violence and those engaged in domestic violence. An intake appointment is required. Please let us help.

If this is an emergency, call 911! Call us at: 323-860-5806 or send an email message to [email protected]. After regular business hours, you can also call the 24-hour national domestic violence hotline at 888-799-7233 (SAFE).

If you think you or your family member has a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. Do not attempt to access emergency medical care through this contact email.

If you are an established client of the Center with a non-emergency medical question, please call 323-993-7500.

Examples of the kinds of questions that you can send to this email are:

  • What are your hours?
  • Do I have to have insurance to come there?
  • Can I get my name changed there?

By clicking continue I understand that I should use this mail box only for a non-emergency, non-urgent question.
