Prevention & Education

Most people know New Hope Midcoast through our direct services to victim-survivors of domestic abuse. But it is also our goal to help stop abuse before it begins.

We do this through local education and prevention programs:

  • Trauma-informed presentations delivered to students K-12 in over 80 schools
  • Collaboration with various faith-based and community organizations
  • Volunteer opportunities

Why do we do prevention and education work?

Through our prevention and education programs, we strive to deepen the public’s understanding of domestic abuse, dating violence and stalking. These issues do not just impact the victim-survivors. They are social justice and public health issues that impact individuals, families and society as a whole. That means, in order to end abuse, we need to work to end all forms of oppression and challenge the cultural beliefs that foster them.
