We are committed to sharing resources, providing information, and using our voices to advocate for the survivors in our community. One way we support victims and survivors is educating others about the effects violence has on individuals, their families, and on our wider community. Please contact us at any time to request a presentation, schedule a training, or to participate in an awareness event at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (231) 759-7909.

Dating Violence Education
Studies show that one in five teenagers has experienced violence in a dating relationship; however, fewer than 3% have reported the incident to an authority figure such as a teacher, counselor, social worker or police officer. Every Woman’s Place offers a free Dating Violence Prevention Program for area schools that teaches youth about healthy relationship development, non-violent conflict resolution, and bystander intervention.
