We offer prevention, education, and training programs that promote social change by teaching children and adults about the benefits of nonviolence and respect within any relationship.
Community Education & Outreach
Community education includes presentations to groups such as businesses, civic groups, faith-based organizations, law enforcement, healthcare, and other providers to raise awareness about domestic violence’s impact on individuals and communities.
Community-based training program is designed to increase knowledge and promote skill development toward understanding and effectively responding to domestic abuse – in the workplace, among consumers and/or clients, and in the community. Consultation is available for community partners seeking to develop and implement policy, protocol, and organizational practice which centers survivor safety and encourages accountability with those who have used abuse and violence in relationships.
Our community outreach supports developing a coordinated community response to violence through events such as speak-outs and other domestic violence awareness activities; and coordinating and engaging with community-based groups, such as task forces.
Community-based domestic violence task force groups meet in Kennebec and Somerset Counties to provide a means for service providers to network and support one another to better coordinate efforts in addressing and responding to domestic violence.
