Educational Services and Programs

The Domestic Violence Survivors Handbook is an important resource that addresses what domestic violence is, how it impacts victims, and how to get help.

The Sexual Assault Survivors Handbook provides survivors, friends and family with information on medical, judicial and the emotion impacts of sexual assault.

NO MORE Campaign

Every Woman’s Place is a proud supporter of the NO MORE Campaign. This three-year PSA campaign has brought together the voices of over 50 celebrities and public figures to say “No More” to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and to ask bystanders to get involved. Created with vital input from domestic violence and sexual assault organizations across the country, NO MORE is a new unifying symbol designed to galvanize greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

Dating Violence Education

Studies show that one-in-five teenagers has experienced violence in a dating relationship; however, less than 3% have reported the incident to an authority figure such as a teacher, counselor, social worker or police officer. Every Woman’s Place offers a free Dating Violence Program for area schools to teach youth about healthy relationship development, non-violent conflict resolution, and bystander intervention. For more information on this program, please call Anje Banks at (231) 759-7909 ext. 244.
