Heart & Hope Family Violence Prevention Program

The Heart & Hope program provides parents and children with resources and skills to strengthen family relationships and build resilience. Parent victims of past domestic violence and his or her children ages birth through eighteen years old may be eligible to participate. This nine-week education program includes separate skill-building activities for adults and children in addition to family activities to practice skills together. Program activities focus on effective communication, problem-solving, promoting healthy child development, and stress management.

This free program begins February 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Registration for the spring program is available through February 1. Limited space is available, so we encourage early registration. A waitlist for the fall session will be available. Call (775) 340-8360 or email J. Woodbury for information. We require program participants two years and older to wear face masks. The program is not for offenders, nor is it for couples reunifying after occurrences of domestic violence.
