Hope for the Future
A key focus of our agency, violence prevention programs are designed to bring awareness about interpersonal violence and prevent the perpetration of violence.
The majority of programs are presented in our local school districts, from the headstarts through the high schools.
When requested, programs are presented to local groups as well. This may include the Girl Scouts, YMCA, and Camp FLEA, among others.
Pre-school age programs
Programs that are age-appropriate and focus on introducing the topics of family violence, domestic violence, and sexual abuse. Programs hep children identify safe people, safe touches and what to do when they are feeling unsafe.
Elementary School age programs, K-6th
Programs presented to children in these age groups build on lessons learned each year. Program topics include: personal safety, healthy relationships, boundaries, anti-bullying, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol abuse prevention.
High School age programs, 7- 12th
Most of our efforts pertaining to this age group involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes in attitudes and behaviors toward violence and drug and alcohol abuse.
