Statistics indicate 1 in 3 teens have or will experience dating violence. For almost 20 years, SAFEHOME has provided education to youth on healthy and unhealthy relationships to prevent further violence. Middle and high school is the time when youth learn to develop impactful relationships with their friends, family, and dating partners. The dynamics of these relationships lay a foundation for all relationships throughout their lifetime.

What local students have learned from the Healthy Relationships Curriculum:
“My favorite part was how the lessons directly related to things we see everyday in the media. I never realized how unhealthy society is, and it made the lessons that much more real when I could take what I learned and apply it to things I see everyday.” – Erin, age 16
“The lessons gave me information about how not to be abusive and they taught me that I don’t have to be uncomfortable and that I can talk to someone about it.” – Tim, age 15
“I learned how to stay out of abusive relationships and learned more about healthy ones. I also learned different ways to communicate with my friends and peers.” – Keri, age 13
All curriculum is available to middle and high school students in the Johnson County area.
