Prevention

It takes each of us – individuals, schools, and community organizations to build a violence-free Texas. At TCFV, we’re committed to ensuring that our shared vision of a safe and healthy state becomes a reality. Our prevention team supports the efforts of local programs across the state and works to create an environment in Texas in which all can work collaboratively to stop domestic violence once and for all. We also offer resources, trainings, webinars and consultations to support prevention workers, teachers, school officials, young people and allied communities. 

Join TCFV’s prevention team as we shape a world where no one would conceive of abusing or hurting anyone they love.
