Giving in Action This Sunday

 

Since 1987, The Conflict Center (TCC) has forwarded its mission to prevent physical, verbal and emotional violence by partnering with individuals and communities to shift perceptions, attitudes and behaviors through education and skill-building. Over the past 30 years, TCC has provided at least 50% of its services to low income individuals, families, schools and communities, teaching hands-on skills to reduce physical, verbal and emotional violence and help individuals gain the communication and relationship skills that will help them work successfully towards stability and self-sufficiency. TCC has followed through with this commitment for 30 years by providing services through successful collaborations with schools, homeless shelters, public housing, transitional housing agencies and welfare to work programs. In 2015-16 over 65% of those served were low-income. TCC offers services in three main areas including: Skill Building Series classes for teens and adults; Restorative Practices in Schools at all levels and includes assessment; planning, training, mentoring and evaluation; and Social Norming Campaigns in high schools to raise awareness about teen dating violence and create positive peer norms for healthy relationships. Support from FUSD ensures that TCC can continue to make services available to all those who request them, regardless of their ability to pay.
