The mission of Pieces 2 Prevention is to provide education and resources to promote healthy, respectful, non-violent relationships through community partnerships in Warren County.
“Gang violence is connected to bullying is connected to school violence is connected to intimate partner violence is connected to child abuse is connected to elder abuse. It’s all connected.” (Deborah Porthrow-Stith, M.D. Adjunct Professor, Harvard School of Public Health)
Violence comes in many forms and at all ages. While this website is devoted to the promotion of healthy relationships and the prevention of relationship violence, it must be recognized that all forms of violence have a connection. To create a safer Warren County, we must coordinate our prevention programming and services to better provide comprehensive strategies that shift social norms to those that support primary prevention and replace those that support violence in any form.
Our partnerships will include work in the following areas:
- Child abuse & maltreatment
- Bullying prevention
- Teen Dating Violence
- Mental Health Problems
- Alcohol, Tobacco & other Drug Use
- Domestic Violence (also known as Intimate Partner)
- Sexual Assault
- Elder Abuse
