• Project SAFE’s school-based peer support groups, individual therapy, and educational presentations provide students the tools needed to make positive life choices and develop healthy relationships.

• School personnel are offered training and consultation on domestic violence.
Everyone deserves a relationship that is healthy, safe and supportive. If you are in a relationship that is hurting you, it is important for you to know that the abuse is not your fault. It is also important for you to start thinking of ways to keep yourself safe and who you could talk to, whether you decide to end the relationship or not. While you can’t control your partner’s abusive behavior, you can take action to keep yourself as safe as possible.
