(JBWS) Jersey Battered Women's Service
JBWS Mission: The prevention of domestic violence through the protection and empowerment of the victim, the rehabilitation of family members, the advocacy for social changes to prevent partner violence and the education of the public about domestic violence and its consequences.
JBWS Vision: To create a community-wide culture that does not tolerate the presence of any form of family or partner violence...a culture that holds abusers accountable for their actions and victims blameless for their victimization...and a culture that works purposefully to foster healthy relationships, teaching all children the importance of mutual respect between partners.
