Abusive Relationships


Living in a Violent Home

For teens, living in a house affected by domestic violence can have devastating, life-long effects.  Teens living with domestic violence face the unique problem of trying to fit in with their peers while keeping their home life a secret.  The result can be teens who never learn to form trusting, lasting relationships, or teens who end up in violent relationships themselves. But Rubyanna learned to survive living in a violent home through music.

Check out the video below with Rubyanna, then go to our Domestic Violence page for more info.
