Join the movement to end the domestic violence epidemic in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties!

Ve la información de la Comisión Comunitaria Contra la Violencia Doméstica aquí.

Why?

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. Addressing the domestic violence epidemic requires a community-wide response with advocates embedded in the fabric of our society.

What?

Harbor House’s mission is to empower individuals, families and communities by providing domestic violence programs, advocacy and prevention. The Community Commission to End Domestic Violence embodies our mission. 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.

How?

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.

Who?

Anyone interested in getting to work to address the domestic violence epidemic in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. Teens can also join to develop strategies to address dating violence. (Members will not be required to complete 40-hour domestic violence training.)

When?

The Commission meets monthly on the third Thursday of every month. Register at the link below to attend the next meeting!
