WE CAN BE THE CHANGE
Many of our youth do not have healthy examples of relationships. Many learn abusive behaviors and often normalize them. Our focus is to help PREVENT INTIMATE PARTNER ABUSE in youth BEFORE it starts or progresses. Studies show that a young person that is exposed to healthy relationships can go on to heal and overcome trauma. Which is our goal!
The role that trauma is and has played in our youth is an epidemic. This is a reality that cannot be denied.
More than 60% of youth, age 17 and younger, have been exposed to crime, violence and abuse either directly or indirectly.
26% of children in the United States will witness or experience a traumatic event before they turn 4.
