Prevention Education

C.A.R.E.’s goal is to create safety in our community by helping victims/survivors and to promote non-violent relationships by example and education. Prevention education at C.A.R.E. is about educating our community in hopes to stop violence before it can start. At C.A.R.E. we provide prevention education presentations, free of charge, to local schools and community programs such as youth programs, nursing homes, women’s centers, etc. At C.A.R.E we also provide professional prevention education about domestic violence and sexual violence to law enforcement, health care professionals and other professional groups in the community. A violence-free community is attainable.

Community Education

Community education presentations are provided to schools, churches, clubs, businesses and other organizations by staff and trained volunteers. C.A.R.E. also provides professional education about domestic and sexual violence to law enforcement, health care, social services and human resource professionals. Presentations are free and can be tailored to meet the needs and time-frame allotted by your organization.

Education for Students

At C.A.R.E. our goal is to end violence in our community. A part of that goal is providing primary prevention education to break the cycle of violence in future generations through outreach and education towards the youth in Charlotte County. Research shows that the prevalence of bullying, harassment, dating/sexual violence is reaching epidemic proportions. In working with students of all ages, we find that they often have difficulty understanding the difference between abusive and healthy relationships. On a broader level, many students lack the skills needed to clearly communicate their feelings and boundaries to others.
