Services include programs for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and sexual abuse, preventive education programs, and treatment and intervention for domestic violence and sexual assault offenders.
We have a strong commitment to eliminating family violence, providing treatment to those who have been traumatized by violence, and providing the skills training and opportunities for necessary change. Our programs are designed to empower survivors during this difficult time of their lives. As the only organization in Kaua`i County offering a full range of domestic violence services, we provide the sole Family Violence Shelter in the County.
