Ten Things Men Can do to Prevent Gender Violence

 

This information is brought to you by Jewish Family Service of the Cincinnati area.

 

Jewish Family Service works to combat domestic violence and sexual assault by raising awareness in the larger Cincinnati community, training professional service providers, prevention educators, teachers, clergy, and other professionals to identify and respond appropriately to survivors, and providing case management to survivors seeking support.

  

To help shine a light on this prevalent problem, we appreciate the $10,000 grant from Verizon's HopeLine program, which provides support for domestic violence awareness and prevention. Verizon also collects, refurbishes and then donates no-longer-used wireless phones to domestic violence victims and survivors. Last year more than 1,400 phones were provided through its HopeLine program.  

 

 

The Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships information is adapted from the Family Violence Prevention Project of the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati.
