What We Do
Women Helping Women works to implement a public health framework for prevention at the individual level, professional service provider level, school/organizational level, building coalitions and collaborations, and advocating with policy makers. WHW knows that it can generate effective change and impact our service region.

Prevent and Empower
Prevent and Empower education programs are evidence-based, interactive and current to ensure a productive, engaging experience. We offer 10-day or 5-day programs in schools or other youth serving organizations. The Prevent and Empower curriculum explores signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships, sexual assault and sexual harassment (including use of social media and technology), consent, bystander intervention, resources to help a friend or loved one and communication skills geared to promote a healthy relationship.

We tailor all of our programs to reflect the needs of the group and/or educator, and can accommodate various models.
