Prevention and Outreach

A project of SVS to end family violence.

Prevention and Education

In light of the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus our Community Outreach and Education programs have been suspended including our presentations, community coalition meetings, and boothing at events. We will continue to update this as things change.

As domestic violence is an ever prevalent problem, and as we will likely to continue to actually see increase of violence during time of quarantine and isolation, we want to make our Educational and Prevention materials accessible to as many as we can. You can find links to our recorded presentations below as the post survey which we use to collect anonymous information on knowledge gained from our presentations. If you have questions please feel free to reach out to our Prevention and Education Director, Abbey at abbeys@svsutah.org

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, PLEASE NOTE THAT SVS IS STILL OPEN AND SERVING SURVIVORS DAILY. PLEASE CALL OUR CRISIS LINE 801.255.1095 EXT 0 IF YOU NEED HELP WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESOURCES.

This is a great presentation for classrooms (virtual), teen groups, church groups, etc.

This is a presentation designed for adult groups, teaching the foundations of domestic violence and how to get help.

The Prevention and Education Department offers a wide-range of  evidence-based programs to educate Utahans of all ages and backgrounds about domestic violence. This department also works to bring awareness about the issues surrounding domestic violence and ultimately, prevent domestic violence in Utah. Prevention and Education staff members can provide programs for individuals, groups, companies, churches, classrooms, schools, and any other location/function that would be interested in learning more about domestic violence and available services. In addition to educational programs,  Prevention and Education staff members attend events to provide information about domestic violence, agency services,  and other resources in the community. These events include, but are not limited to: community events (fairs), volunteer/employment fairs, health and wellness fairs, business expos, and conferences.

All our material is available in English and Spanish.
