This county-approved program helps participants modify behavior patterns and break the cycle of violence by learning new skills around power and control, accountability and communication. Men’s and women’s Spanish and English speaking groups meet weekly for two (2) hours at various locations throughout Ventura County. Participation can be voluntary or court-mandated (a 52-week program). In addition, we offer a 24-week male teen (18 years of age and younger) batterers group.

WAYS TO GIVE
Our efforts are possible because of caring, compassionate individuals and organizations who believe victims deserve better and brighter futures, without violence and abuse. Thank you for choosing to support The Coalition and the families and communities we serve.
When a person exits a life of abuse, they have few, if any, possessions. Even with the promise of freedom, it is a frightening and confusing time. We seek to help ease the process of restoration as much as we can by providing counseling, comfort, and skills that can assist with the transition to a new life.
Our supporters stand at the center of every level of our prevention work. We would not be able to continue in this crucial work if it were not for your support. Thank you.
