Helping domestic violence victims reset from abuse

Control Alt Delete LLC is a federally designated 501(c)3 nonprofit located in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area. Our primary focus is removing the barriers that prevent domestic violence victims from fleeing abusive relationships.  

98% of domestic abuse victims suffer financial abuse, and this is the #1 reason why domestic violence victims stay with their abusers. The abuser controls money, which leaves the victim with no available financial resources to escape the relationship.


We connect domestic violence victims with community resources and support by providing basic immediate needs. With support from our community we provide emergency cab rides, hotel accommodations, home security systems, lock change assistance, meals, storage and moving companies.


Control Alt Delete was founded on September 2, 2019 to help people who are escaping domestic violence with basic immediate needs – food, lodging, hygiene items, and transportation. We bridge the gap by removing barriers that keep people in unsafe environments.

Helping people escape in the immediate time of need in a domestic violence situation bridges a gap in services. As both a survivor of domestic violence and working in the nonprofit sector; domestic violence effects far too many people to not help.

I took on the role as Vice President for Control Alt Delete because I have personally witnessed people needing help to leave an abusive situation. It hurts my heart not being able to help others escape from the horror they come home to every day. So many people turn a blind eye on those in need. I want to be a part of the solution and not the problem.

I am thrilled to work with Control Alt Delete because I have personally seen the difference that Laura makes in the community and the way she touches everyone she meets. Control Alt Delete fills a need that no other organization I have seen does: connecting domestic violence survivors with ways to get to life-saving resources while adapting to the individual needs of each survivor. I am passionate about empowering survivors to get the help they need and find the freedom they deserve!

From extended family members to the thousands of victims this organization helped before I joined, I have learned how much people, both women and men, need help and how much just a little can go a long ways. I know how much Control Alt Delete has done and will continue to do and I am proud to join and be apart of this push for freedom.

I became a board member because I have friends and acquaintances who have been through abuse at the hands of people who they loved. I know abuse comes in many ways…I’ve seen the physical and heard the verbal and have also seen the mental, abuse friends have gone through. I know that it takes just one person to help others. And I want others to know they can help someone too.
