Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention
At Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention, we are driven
by two simple yet powerful beliefs: That everyone in the community
deserves to be safe. And that everyone in the community plays
a role in preventing violence. Our mission is to give people
the power to change their lives for the better. Monadnock
Center for Violence Prevention is a non-profit agency devoted
to helping victims of domestic and sexual violence-and helping
to prevent the cycle of violence that is so destructive to
individuals, families and the community. We provide a range
of crisis services, including, a 24-hour crisis hotline, an
emergency shelter, safety planning, support groups and peer
counseling, and legal advocacy.
We also believe that education
plays a key role in preventing violence. We provide a range
of education and outreach services that engage people of all
ages on the issue of domestic and sexual violence. These services
include programs for children and teens that focus on topics
such as bullying, sexual harassment and teen relationship
violence. We also provide programs for adults through professional
trainings in different community organizations and businesses.
These trainings are focused on raising awareness and understanding
of domestic and sexual violence.
For the last 25 years, Monadnock
Center for Violence Prevention has been providing services
to Cheshire County and Western Hillsborough County. In 2003,
MCVP served 1552 people, a fraction of the people who could
use our services. If you or someone you know is being abused
and needs help, please call us at 603-352-3782. All of our
services are free and confidential. If you are interested
in volunteering, we always have a need. Fall training is approaching,
so please contact the office for more information at 603-352-3782.
