EDUCATION

Education and prevention are the key to ending violence. The Women's Center offers public education and prevention programs on many topics related to domestic violence and sexual assault/abuse. Our counselors and speakers will make onsite visits to schools, workplaces, worship centers, and organizations in order to speak to children, adolescents, and adults. We sponsor professional training for various professional groups--such as legal, medical, and law enforcement.
