How Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc. impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Family Violence Prevention Services envisions a San Antonio that is safe and healthy for children and families, free from violence. FVPS directly supports the SA2020 Family Well Being Vision & Goals of Domestic Violence Reduction, Child Abuse/Maltreatment Reduction; Reduction of Homelessness/Improvement of Stability of Residence; and Reduction of Rate of Families Living in Poverty. We do this by providing a safe refuge for victims of domestic violence at the Battered Women & Children’s Shelter and through a range of programs including comprehensive counseling for adults and children at all area homeless shelters; non-residential individual and group counseling; legal services; substance abuse and dating violence intervention and prevention for high school youth; parenting education; and a State-certified Batterer’s Intervention Program. Volunteers are a vital part of our agency, helping to provide care and compassion to victims of domestic violence and raise awareness of the need for greater community involvement.
