Ve la información de la Comisión Comunitaria Contra la Violencia Doméstica aquí.
Domestic violence is one of the most prevalent crimes in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. Domestic violence is not a family problem; it is everyone's problem. The primary purpose of the Commission is to activate the community to join the movement against domestic violence in order to create safer, stronger neighborhoods.
Commission members will develop prevention, outreach and training strategies that will increase domestic violence awareness, connect survivors to Harbor House services, and, ultimately, reduce violence in our communities. At meetings, members will also receive brief, domestic violence training on various topics to empower them in their work.
This is for anyone interested in getting to work to address the domestic violence epidemic in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties.
The Commission meets monthly on the third Thursday of every month. Register at the link below to attend the next meeting!
