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.
CVIC and its partners began the Safer Tomorrows Road Map in 2016 to end violence in two generations. Never before has one project addressed domestic, dating and sexual violence, and bullying in this way, by simultaneously promoting cultural change through education while providing safety and preventing the effects of trauma from being passed among generations.
This innovation equips community members with skills to develop positive relationships and prevent the use of violence at every stage of life.
