Creating Healthy Relationships
The Haven is actively engaged in the Prevention of Sexual and Domestic Violence
through our Prevention Programming. The Haven currently offers Sexual and Dating
Violence Prevention Programs in the Northumberland County and Richmond County
Middle and High Schools through our Safe Dates and Too Good for Violence Programs.
These programs are focused on youth and teaching positive relationship skills.
Prevention is also addressed through a Sexual Violence Prevention Coalition that
is made up of a variety of community professionals and individuals who work together
to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors that can reduce the chances of initial
perpetration of sexual and domestic violence throughout our community.
The Haven staff also provides training and technical assistance related to the development
of policy and practice that reduces the chance of initial perpetration of sexual and domestic
violence and promotes a swift and effective response to sexual and domestic violence.
