"The mission of HOPE Center is the create zero tolerance for sexual and domestic violence through Healing, Outreach, Prevention and Education.  Through innovative programming they offer direct support to victims of violence in Rice County, collaborative support to other organizations that serve victims, and educational support to the entire community."  That Mission Statement is on their website. hopecenter.org.

They have resources for victims and those of us who may be friends of victims like how to help a friend who has been abused.  How to respond when someone contacts you about being abused.

We hope you can tune in and join us in educating ourselves about domestic violence.The 24 hour SafeLine is 1-800-607-2330.
