Education and prevention are critical to turning the tide of dating, domestic, and sexual violence. SAFEHOME is proud of our national award-winning programs that help youth and adults recognize, reduce, and help prevent violent acts.
SAFEHOME’s educators work with the community and youth to change the culture in Johnson County and surrounding areas.
The mission of SAFEHOME is to break the cycle of domestic violence and partner abuse for victims and their children by providing shelter, advocacy, counseling, and prevention education in our community. The educators support that mission by providing life-changing presentations over healthy and unhealthy relationships, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, sexual assault, and bystander intervention, while maintaining an engaging, educational, and realistic approach. The educators present difficult subject matters in the hope that informing and educating young students will provide a discernible impact on the rates of domestic abuse.
SAFEHOME provides a variety of presentations. The educators reach audiences through creative use of engaging activities, group discussions, lectures, and theatre. Single or multi-session educational curriculum can be delivered and adapted to enhance awareness and promote positive change for all groups of people.
