OUR SERVICES

Decreased Stress = Decreased Violence

 We found that there are many stress factors that increase the risk for violence. Stress factors include
reduced access to resources, financial problems & disconnection from social support systems. We hope to
reduce violence by addressing as many needs as we can; decreasing stress = decreasing violence.
