Community Outreach Programs
MCVP will be focusing its outreach efforts on the local faith community to mark Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Many local congregations pass out prayer cards provided by MCVP, and make special mention of the many survivors of domestic violence in their community. Our outreach staff will be offering free workshops for groups aligned with the faith community, facilitating discussions on how best to support those survivors and their families.
