Domestic Violence Awareness, Prevention and Support
Our latest addition to our health services was launched in Fall 2012, the Domestic Violence Awareness, Prevention and Support Program came as an extension to our decade long preventive health care. Through this initiative we seek to increase awareness that domestic violence is a crime for which there are laws and resources in this country; challenge community norms that perpetuate or tolerate gender violence; inform the community that Mixteca is a resource to which they can turn to; and link individuals/families in need of domestic violence support and services to culturally sensitive resources. Our Domestic Violence Awareness, Prevention and Support Program is conducted in partnership with the 72nd Precinct Domestic Violence Unit, CONNECT, General Consulate of Mexico in NY, Kings County District Attorney’s Office, Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence, Safe Homes Project, and The Brooklyn Justice Center.
