The mission of P.E.A.C.E. (Putting An End to Abuse through Community Efforts) Initiative is to educate the community about the extent, and often-deadly consequences of domestic violence and to respond effectively through collaborative efforts.

  • We work to increase public awareness on domestic violence by teaching, training, and public speaking, in public, private, alternative, university and college classroom settings, public meetings, open forums, neighborhood meetings, churches of all denominations.
  • We train people in the medical, law enforcement, child protection, social service, religious, corporate, legal, education, inmate (youth and adult), criminal justice supervision fields, as well as community and civic leaders, and educate them on issues of domestic violence such as resources available, culturally relevant interventions, appropriate case management, and safety planning.
  • We also focus on the plight as it affects the lives of the youth by educating about teen dating violence.
  • We serve on boards and commissions, at the local, state and national levels to represent the grassroots experience of dealing with domestic violence as interventions, rules, policy and procedure themes are addressed in developing practice models for responding to family violence.

Addressing violence and abuse through networking, client education and empowerment

We work with the offender population in the Bexar County that are first-time arrestees on domestic violence charges and who are eligible for PR Bond, to educate about domestic violence, to promote healthy relationships, to lower recidivism rates, and intervene in the cyclical nature of domestic violence within the criminal justice system. Nine two hour sessions involve learning about their responsibilities and options with regard to stopping domestic violence, child custody, parental obligations, as survivors and or perpetrators of domestic violence, etc.

Court-mandated students only.

This program is collaborating with community-based organizations—especially women’s organizations—to learn about the extent and impact of family violence. This campaign will engage males in the learning about and need for stopping the spousal and child abuse violence and involve them in community education, arts, activist, organizing, faith based and neighborhood events and activities to do so.
