Domestic abuse, hate crime and harassment

No one should have to live in fear of violence from a spouse or partner, or any member of their household.

That is why OVH provides assistance and support to any tenant suffering from or threatened with violence, whether this be physical, emotional or psychological.

Anyone can experience domestic abuse such as physical assault, sexual abuse, rape, threats, destructive criticism, pressure tactics, disrespect, breaking trust, isolation and harassment.
