If you want to save this information but don't think it is safe to take it home, see if a trusted friend can keep it for you. Plan ahead. Know who you can call for help, and memorize the phone number.
Be careful online too. Your online activity may be seen by others. Do not use your personal computer or device to read about this topic. Use a safe computer such as one at work, a friend's house, or a library.
Here are some helpful items to get together when you are
planning on leaving an abusive situation. Keep these items in a safe place
until you are ready to leave or in case you need to leave suddenly. If you have
children, take them. And take your pets, too, if possible.
