This list will grow over time. My personal suspicion is that it will
always be a subset of what's available out there, as not everyone has net
access and there's going to be some set of groups which provide for male
DV survivors but haven't yet done a good job of publicising the fact.
Information on the Web
- Men-Web Domestic Violence
- MenWeb: Men's Voices Magazine
has a 16-page supplement on DV against men in Vol. 1, Issue 4. They've
also posted information on their
web site well worth looking over. This points to the front page of
the information, I'll be peppering my site with links to individual
articles where appropriate.
- Philip Cook has a web site in support of his book, abused men: The Hidden Side Of Domestic
Violence, which also contains some good information.
- S.A.F.E. (Stop
Abuse For Everyone) is one of the first groups to have a web site up
dealing explicitly with DV situations that did not conform to the "Men
batter women" model.
Shelters, Hotlines, and other Real-time resources
- The Resource Center
in Aberdeen, SD
recently changed its name, but hasn't yet updated ts web page.
Don't let the old name, Resource Center for Women discourage you!
I've spoken with them and they provide counseling for men, may start a
men's support group soon, and provide ad hoc sheltering for battered
men who've had to leave their homes.
If you'd like your shelter, hotline, or other service added to this listing,
send it to me!.
