  • Looking at Biblical scriptures that demonstrate setting healthy boundaries, even fleeing a situation can be right and appropriate

About Abuse Recovery Ministry and Services
ARMS is a non-profit organization providing services since 1997. We offer a free victim recovery class for woman called Her Journey. This program is offered in multiple locations in Oregon and Washington. ARMS also offers intervention programs for men and for female secondary aggressors, as well as a domestic violence focused parenting program. Men and woman are served separately in these programs.

ARMS provide presentations for youth groups and schools on dating abuse, power and outreach luncheons and trainings, especially in the faith community. All services are faith-based and anyone is welcome to participate regardless of their faith background.
