Signs of Domestic Violence
Education, Outreach & Prevention
How can we work together to prevent violence and homelessness in Hampton Roads?
Education is the best prevention. Samaritan House believes that prevention begins with awareness of healthy and unhealthy relationship patterns and offers a variety of training, presentations, and interactive workshops to help build awareness of domestic and sexual violence as well as human trafficking to the community. Our Primary Prevention Specialist provides programming and presentations to children and teens, business associations, faith-based groups, and after-school programs. Please contact us for a presentation and help be part of the solution. Presentations can be tailored for specific audiences and age groups.
