HELP IS NEEDED!

Summertime can bring about fun for many families in the area; however, for those families experiencing domestic violence, this time of year can mean making the life-changing decision to leave a violent home. Shelter and crisis services typically increase during the summer, and this places a strain on agency resources. Please consider donating items from the current needs list to help the agency serve individuals in need.

Prevention Education and Awareness

The mission of the Prevention Education Team is to provide quality community education that will end domestic violence and sexual violence in Bastrop, Colorado, Fayette, and Lee Counties.

Prevention Programs K-5th Grade

Presentations are designed to educate K-5th grade students and increase awareness of the different types of abuse and strategies for safety and seeking help; topics include emotional and verbal abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, internet safety and community resources. These programs enhance self-esteem, build relationship skills, and enhance children’s ability to resolve conflict with non-violent actions.

Prevention Programs 6th-12th Grade

Presentations are designed to educate 6th-12th grade students about sexual assault, sexual harassment, teen dating violence, and bullying and by-standers. These programs provide information on how to recognize abusive relationships, how to report abuse as it happens, and how to deter it from happening in the future.

Community Prevention Programs

Community education and awareness programs focusing on the dynamics of domestic, sexual and dating violence are also offered to parents, civic organizations, the faith-based community, health care providers, mental health care professionals, school administration and teachers, social services agencies and businesses.

Sexual Assault Focused Education for Teens(S.A.F.E. Teens)

Presentations are designed to educate and engage 14 to 18 year old youth on primary prevention issues including Tolerance, Gender Stereotypes, Sexual Harassment, Stalking/Cyberstalking, and Sexual Assault.

These primary prevention programs are offered to middle schools, high schools and after school programs in Bastrop, Colorado, Fayette and Lee counties.

Volunteer Services
