Faith House is once again hosting their summer program entitled, “Love Is…”

This program is open to all girls, ages 11 to 17. The primary focus of the program is to educate teenage girls on the healthy aspects of dating and the warning signs of dating violence. The program will be following the nationally-acclaimed and evidence-based curriculum, “Safe Dates.”

The goals of the program include: (1) changing adolescent dating violence and gender-role norms, (2) improving peer help-giving and dating conflict-resolution skills, (3) promoting the need for victims and perpetrators to seek help through community resources and (4) decreasing dating abuse victimization and perpetration.
