We envision a community where Interpersonal Partner Violence (IPV) is replaced by equality, empowerment, and emotional & physical safety.
- To respond to domestic & sexual violence and stalking in our community by providing a care & support system for survivors.
- To work to end interpersonal violence in all forms through primary prevention, community engagement, & collaboration.
- Emotional, physical, and sexual violence are unacceptable.
No one should have to be a survivor: We believe in the right to live free from violence and the fear of violence, and that everyone deserves respect.
- Breaking the cycle.
We believe prevention & intervention must be at work simultaneously until we reach our vision.
- Empowerment and self-determination.
We believe in the right to have control over one’s body, mind and spirit.
We believe that individual, organization, & community health are interrelated, and that trauma exposure can negatively impact health and well-being.
We affirm the importance of personal, professional and organizational growth.
- Integrity & Respect
We value integrity and respect as guiding principles in all our work.
