Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness for Youth
Community Outreach staff facilitate workshops in schools to educate students on the signs and effects of domestic violence. We also teach conflict resolution and healthy relationship building skills.
Comprehensive Support Groups Offered in English and Spanish
Community Outreach staff facilitate over ten on-site and community based support groups weekly for victims of domestic violence. These provide a safe, confidential place for survivors to express their feelings and experiences while receiving the support and empowerment they need to make healthy, secure choices for them and their families. These sessions may also include stress relieving relaxation techniques.
