"When they know how, friends and family can reduce a survivor's isolation, help survivors implement safety planning, offer practical aid like a safe place to stay, childcare or a ride to work, and provide needed encouragement and long-term support. Advocates have an important role to play in helping survivors strengthen support networks and decrease the isolation of abuse."
