Teen dating violence awareness and prevention week Free sexy no sign up naked chat
This is an issue that impacts everyone – not just teens – but their parents, teachers, friends and communities as well.
Together, we can raise the nation’s awareness about teen dating violence and promote safe, healthy relationships.
The Ohio Family Violence Prevention Center (FVPC), housed at OCJS, serves as an information clearinghouse for public and private organizations as they provide assistance to victims and offers a variety of services such as providing victim advocacy/assistance, organizing workshops, giving presentations and conducting research on family violence and its impact on communities.
The Ohio Family Violence Prevention Advisory Council, a part of the Center, is where Ohio’s top experts in domestic and family violence prevention come together to consider and recommend improvements in the state.
Most recently, the Council, along with other lead agencies in the state, provided guidance and assistance for HB 19, the Tina Croucher Act, which requires schools to adopt policies to prevent and address abusive relationships.
The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore - the issue affects not just youth but their families, schools and communities as well.
Less than one week after its first observance, Jennifer Ann Crecente - a high school honors student - was murdered by her ex-boyfriend.
