Blain Nelson's Abuse Pages
Offers a load of information and resources on domestic violence and other types of abuse, although it's emphasis seems to be on the former. I liked it because it was written from the side of a former abuser, and so has a lot to say to those who may also be abusing their significant others and suggestions about how and where to get help. Could better present the information it has to offer, and check out a few broken links, but otherwise a top-notch resource.

Violence shapes the lives, experiences, and dreams of countless adults and children each year. In the case of people of color, lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender individuals, and youth, this violence can be compounded by experiences of racism; homo/transphobia; and ageism and insensitivity to youth culture.
As a project of the Center for Digital Storytelling, we use participatory media, popular education, and testimonio practices to support the telling and witnessing of stories that all too often remain unspoken and unheard. With the permission of storytellers and project partners, stories are shared in local communities and globally through broadcast or social media outlets, as strategic tools for training, grassroots organizing, and policy advocacy to promote dignity and justice.

Dr. Lisa Cooney
Dr. Lisa Cooney is a leading authority on thriving after abuse. The effects of abuse can show up in every area of your life: your health, relationships, finances, career. It is pervasive. When abuse owns you, it constricts and limits what you can create. You feel locked in an invisible cage that you can't find the key for.
It is for this reason that she strives to help individuals build a bridge from just surviving abuse, to living a life that is "Radically Alive" with possibility, a concept she refers to as "living your ROAR" (Radically Orgasmically Alive Reality). As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Phd, certified Access Consciousness Facilitator and Master Theta Healer, having found the keys to unlock herself from the cage of abuse and limitation, she has now committed her life to revolutionizing the therapeutic approach to trauma in order to free others from the shackles of abuse.

Survivor Matters has been created by survivors for survivors, to enable survivors to discuss their journeys and issues and to gain support from each other. The Survivor Matters message board aims to provide a safe place for survivors and the family and friends of survivors to discuss issues and what they are going through, with people who have been there and understand in a non-judgemental environment. Although members are at different stages in their journeys, their experiences can help another survivor to understand themselves and what they are going through.
