What We DoWhat We Do

The Center for Safety & Change Telephone Crisis Hotline is answered 24 hours/day, seven days/week. During business hours, the Hotline is answered by Center for Safety & Change’s professional staff; at all other times the Hotline is answered by Center for Safety & Change’s specially trained volunteers. Center for Safety & Change’s professional staff or volunteers are always available to answer questions, provide information and referrals, and arrange for advocacy, counseling, and all other Center for Safety & Change services at any time, day or night, 365 days per year.

TDVPP educators, over the course of a three-day training during school hours, create an engaging learning atmosphere in which meaningful, interactive classroom discussions regarding respectful and healthy relationships, dating violence, sexual assault, laws of consent, gender roles, controlling behavior, bullying/cyber bullying, media literacy, bystander concerns and how to find help for oneself and for friends take place.

TDVPP trainings are provided at no cost to participating schools or districts. In 2015, TDVPP trainings were conducted 328 times in all ten public high schools and two middle schools in Rockland County, with a total attendance of 3,350 middle school, high school and college students. With increasing awareness of the extent and prevalence of dating violence among school personnel, demand for TDVPP continues to outstrip the Center’s capacity. For instance, many high schools have requested extending the three-day training to a five day training, where topics of such as media literacy can be more extensively discussed; however, at this time, the Center does not have the resources and staffing to meet this and other requests.

“I thought the workshop was tremendous. So valuable to myself as well as our students. It was VERY well received by our kids and I have already booked dates for both semesters next year! It fit nicely in to our curriculum and is certainly a topic in need of being addressed to our teens.” –Health Teacher Nanuet High School
