RENEW for women
Reflectively Embracing Nonviolence through Education for Women (RENEW) is an advocacy, intervention, and support group program for women who have used force in their intimate relationships. The program’s framework is grounded in the philosophy that a community and social systems approach to assessment, advocacy, group member education and support is critical to effectively serving the complex needs of this population.
The RENEW Program’s philosophy and mission are driven by the belief that women — whether they are domestic violence survivors or not — who use force against a partner escalate the level of violence again themselves and, potentially, put others in their lives at risk of harm.
RENEW participants will work to better understand their use of force and benefit from advocacy, education and peer support as they navigate complex circumstances and work toward violence-free lives. Tuition is charged on a sliding scale
