Martin Luther King, Jr., envisioned the day when little boys and girls of different skin colors would join hands in a sign of unity and respect. At Women In Need, our prevention team believes that prevention is vital to bring about a day of universal respect and healthy relationships.
According to the CDC, 1 in 5 women will experience both physical and sexual contact violence in an intimate partner relationship. In addition, 1 in 7 men will experience physical contact violence and 1 in 12 men will experience sexual contact violence in an intimate partner relationship.
Our prevention team is available to provide information at various events to help members of our community understand the sad prevalence of domestic violence and the resources available to survivors and their families.
It's important for members of the communities we serve to be aware of how often domestic violence occurs. In addition, we believe it’s important for them to know how to come alongside survivors and provide support and encouragement.
Our prevention team is available to provide training to various groups in our community, including church groups, law enforcement, and school faculty.
Preventing violence before it starts in relationships begins with our students. Our prevention team works with 6th graders through university students, teaching social and emotional behaviors and patterns of healthy and unhealthy behaviors in dating relationships.
