No one should ever be the victim — or perpetrator — of relationship violence. Prevention is possible.

Mission: To challenge and disrupt societal norms around relationship violence through education and awareness.

Claires Community - A Be More Like Claire Initiative, Interpersonal Violence Prevention Program

Vision: Empowered communities that foster healthy relationships in safe and protective environments. 

A comprehensive relationship violence prevention program.

Claire’s Community offers a suite of violence prevention programs to teach safe and healthy relationship skills; engage and equip influential adults and peers; disrupt pathways to relationship violence; and create proactive, protective, and safe communities.

 

We envision a community where everyone enjoys safe, supportive relationships in which they can thrive and where no one is a victim — or perpetrator — of interpersonal violence. It's a big dream, we know. But prevention is possible. Educating and empowering individuals of all ages to build healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationships has a powerful ripple effect that brings transformative change to our community.
