Our Mission 

The mission of the Violence Prevention Center is to foster a community which cultivates healthy relationships, empowers systems to serve individuals with equity and compassion, and does not tolerate violence. We serve all who have been affected by or subjected to domestic violence, sexual assault, or human trafficking.

Our Vision Statement

Peaceful and just communities free of violence.


Our Philosophy

  • Everyone has the right to live free of sexual and domestic violence regardless of age, race, gender, financial status, religion, ethnicity, ability, immigration status, sexual orientation, country of origin, socioeconomic status, gender expression, gender identity, relationship status, citizenship status, criminal activity, relationship identity, height, weight size, or any other identifier.

  • Everyone must have free and confidential access to services.

  • Community awareness and education are necessary to eliminate violence to build healthy relationships.

  • Those who choose to perpetrate must be held accountable for their violent behavior.

  • Zero tolerance for violence must be a community standard.
