Violence in
Two Generations

Find Out More





With a bold mission to end interpersonal violence in two generations, CVIC delivers vital safety and healing services throughout greater Grand Forks to adults and children experiencing domestic or sexual violence. We educate youth and professionals about how to stop violence and teach our communities ways to develop healthy relationships.


When you experience interpersonal violence due to domestic or sexual violence, stalking or other interpersonal crime, finding a safe place to go and feeling safe again is a first step. 


We are learning more each day about the impact of trauma on human lives. And with the right approach, we can offer hope and healing for those harmed by violence. 


We teach our communities, from youth to adults, skills needed to build relationships and become bystanders who promote a violence-free community and change norms.

Ending Interpersonal Violence in Two Generations

Designed to end interpersonal violence in two generations, the Safer Tomorrows Road Map aims to address domestic, dating and sexual violence, and bullying by simultaneously advancing cultural change through education, promoting safety and healthy relationships and overcoming trauma and its impact on future generations. This innovation equips community members with skills to develop positive relationships and prevent the use of violence at every stage of life. The video at left shares insights into how this vision is coming to life for area youth who experience its education and healing benefits.
