Community Safety

Family Services works with individuals who have a history of gun-related, domestic violence, or aggression in their relationships in order to help them learn a healthier approach to the people in their lives and communities.  Our programs increase awareness of how belief systems and personal histories can lead to violence, giving these individuals the knowledge and skills to make the changes in their lives that make our communities safer.

Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI)

IPVI is an offender-focused strategy designed to hold accountable the most serious and chronic offenders in our community. The program intervenes in cases known to law enforcement, in order to prevent violence from continuing or escalating, while creating connection to supportive services for victims.

SNUG

Through strong community collaborations, SNUG prevents gun violence by identifying its causes and interrupting its cycle. SNUG helps individuals turn their lives around and facilitates community outreach and activities that help build a stronger, safer community.

Domestic Abuse Awareness Classes (DAAC)

DAAC is a psycho-educational program for men to address the crime of domestic violence. We help individuals gain knowledge and skills that result in increased safety for victims, children and the community.
