The Center for Violence-Free Relationships knows that the only way to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault from our community is to build healthy relationships, families and communities. We can build a healthy community through education. The Center’s Prevention and Community Education Programs see violence as a continuum of behaviors instead of single, isolated event. Violence is not inevitable and can be prevented by making changes to social norms.
