Working to prevent intimate partner violence (IPV) is about exploring its root causes and building ongoing, community defined solutions to address them.
Engaging in prevention requires that domestic violence programs and their partners support a strategic visioning process with communities. Service providers themselves become more deeply rooted within the community they serve and develop a more robust understanding of the unique needs and resources that exist there.
NRCDV understands prevention as a proactive integrated approach that combines services and social change to promote a culture of respect, equality, and peace. We believe that prevention is possible. Learn more at PreventIPV.org.
