Domestic violence and sexual assault are issues that affect all persons, communities and organizations. While the Women’s Center provides a safe place for individuals that have been victimized to heal and become survivors, primary prevention efforts focus on changing the beliefs and norms that contribute to domestic violence and sexual assault in the first place. Changing the current reality can contribute to safer communities.
Our Education Department provides programs to local schools, community groups and professionals that teach strategies incompatible with violence and that promote healthy, non-violent relationships. Programs can also be customized to meet the needs of any group. If you are interested in any of the currently offered programs below or need more information, please call us at 724-775-2032.
