October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to help recognize, prevent, and respond to a serious health crisis affecting a tremendous number of women — and men — across the country.
February is national Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. FYSB’s Family Violence Prevention and Services Program is proud to support the many events hosted by our grantees and partners this year by presenting public awareness campaigns, webinars, social media events, and radio shows that highlight healthy relationships.
The FVPSA Program’s SSAPC twelve demonstration sites consist of domestic violence coalitions, local domestic violence programs, tribal organizations, behavioral health organizations, and a state social services agency. These grantees will work to alleviate trauma experienced by children and youth; support enhanced relationships between children/youth and parents; and improve systemic responses to children and youth exposed to domestic violence, and their abused parents.
As part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program joins with its grantees and federal partners to offer a wide range of domestic violence awareness month educational events and activities. We invite you to join us in building awareness and taking action around ending domestic violence.
