Violence Intervention & Prevention Program (VIPP)

Men’s violence towards women is an unfortunate, tragic issue that affects victims, children, families, and our communities. When men choose to engage in violence and coercive control towards women, their behavior has significant negative effects on the victim, and their actions can be potentially lethal. But the effects of their choices don’t just stop with the direct victim; children who are exposed to this abuse are also affected, and they may be victims of violence themselves. Learn more »
