Community Education

How do we end domestic violence in Montana?

Ending domestic violence requires a social, political, and economic environment to ensure that all people affected by domestic violence are supported and abusers are held accountable. Everyone must be part of the solution.

HAVEN is actively engaged in educating the greater community on domestic violence. We believe that an important step in addressing domestic violence is focusing on prevention, as well as crisis intervention. These programs include:

  • Community Education Team– The CET is a team of volunteers trained to give presentations in the community about domestic violence intervention and prevention.
  • End the Silence– This group consists of survivors who present to the public about their experiences with domestic violence in order to educate the community through first person narrative.
  • HAVEN/Bridger Care Peer Education Team– Peer ed is a group of high school students who are┬ádedicated to creating a community free from sexual, physical, and emotional violence by teaching peers about sexual/reproductive health and healthy relationships.

If you would like to schedule a presentation about domestic violence for your group, please call (406) 586-7689 and speak to HAVEN’s Outreach Coordinator, Emily Kempe.
