Given this Mission, we believe in:

  • Declaring freedom from fear of all forms of abuse a basic human right
  • Empowering survivors of violence to make their own choices by exercising their right to self-determination
  • Respecting children, women and men equally
  • Breaking the cycle of violence through education
  • Offering a program balancing prevention, intervention and support
  • Endorsing public policy making violence unacceptable in our society
  • Conducting our own affairs in an ethical and caring way
  • Establishing ourselves in a leadership role in the community to promote freedom from violence
