LGBTQIA+ Services

Within the LGBTQIA+ community, intimate partner violence occurs at alarmingly high rates. The abuse does not always look and sound the same as it does in relationships in other communities and populations. Survivors of sexual violence or intimate partner violence may experience unique barriers in getting help that cisgender or heterosexual survivors do not encounter. At MCVP: Crisis & Prevention Center, we want you to know we have services that can help.

Direct Services:

Our Safe Space Trained advocates can help you with: safety planning, including navigating coming out* to family and friends; seeking emergency shelter; finding alternative housing; accompaniment to the hospital and police; assistance with protective orders; court prep and support; navigating legal services and referrals to medical and mental health providers.

*Our services are completely confidential: under RSA 173 b, we as an organization are never legally obligated to disclose any information to third parties.

Prevention Education:

Integrated in our prevention education are topics including sexuality: biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual feelings, and sexual expression. We teach to a gender spectrum rather than a binary system and discuss how negative stereotypes can lead to violence. We ensure diverse depictions of relationships as well as the unique ways people in diverse relationships may experience abuse.
