PREVENTION

DpP7do8WsAAwi9K
Prevention, community outreach, and education at The Center for Hope and Healing Inc. are encompassed into one larger program: Hope Prevents. The program title reflects the need for hope in all we do to prevent sexual violence at all levels.

Comprised of community organizing for three intentional groups: Engaging Men & Boys, the LGBQ/T communites, and Youth, Hope Prevents' goal is to raise awareness, co-create knowledge, and develop skills in reducing the impact of oppression and preventing sexual violence. Hope Prevents educates through community-led organizing, facilitating workshops/trainings and presentations, and providing resources using principles of effective prevention.

We aim to prioritize those that historically not been served: youth, primarily youth of color, LGBQ/T communities, refugees and immigrants, the people with disabilities. In knowing that 91% of men are perpetrators of sexual violence, we also prioritize engaging men and boys as allies against sexual violence because we know that they are statistically part of the problem and invaluable to the solution to ending sexual violence.
