Safe Start Violence Prevention Program

The “Safe Start” Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program is designed to help reduce the prevalence and effects of domestic violence. This is accomplished by providing education, prevention and intervention strategies that will empower our youth to make healthy relationship choices. In addition to Dating Violence, the Safe Start Program Curriculum includes topics such as bullying, conflict resolution, internet safety and respect. This program works in collaboration with various schools (7-12), religious organizations and youth groups to reach the youth in communities that they serve. Like most services that The Crisis Center for South Suburbia offers, this program is free of charge.
