A major component of our mission is to provide effective education for the prevention and elimination of domestic violence, also referred to as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). We achieve this through multiple means, including Peace Works, our youth prevention education program. For more information about scheduling training for youth or adults, contact Anita Lai at

“Supporting the development of healthy, respectful, and nonviolent relationships and communities has the potential to reduce the occurrence of IPV.” –The Center for Disease Control and Prevention
