About the Recipe

This guide was created to help you or someone you know discreetly learn about identifying domestic violence, the resources available to you, and to connect you with a few people who can help you change your life.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been particularly stressful and dangerous for anyone in an abusive relationship. The pressure of being locked down with an abuser, the fear of financial problems, and strain on power dynamics make homelife much harder. Post-pandemic, the strain on many households will continue. Many reported cases of domestic violence cite the pandemic and all of the various changes it has brought with it as factors that have made abusive relationships even worse.

The North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic is pleased to provide education and points of contact for people experiencing intimate partner violence. We hope this information helps you or someone you love move toward independence. Remember, you are not alone.

Why “Banana Bread”? The name was inspired by the video under the Kitchen Helpers tab.
