Stronger To Teach Teens About Healthy Relationships

Since our first support group in February 2013, Stronger has continually grown to become an agency of hope and healing for those who experience domestic violence and other patterns of abuse. Stronger strives to develop and provide practical tools for survivors. Our most frequent request is, “What information do you have for my teenager?” Many survivors share their teenager has already experienced abuse and violence in a dating relationship.

A Message from Brooke

As we see the leaves begin to change color, it reminds me that there is a season for everything. Seasons have a beginning, middle and an end.
