Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To significantly reduce domestic violence and adult sexual assault through education, intervention, and treatment.
In 1975, TESSA (formerly known as The Center for Prevention of Domestic Violence) was conceptualized in response to community volunteers' alarm at the frequency of calls from women threatened or assaulted by their intimate partners. At the time, domestic violence was considered a private matter and few resources were available to help victims. Research conducted through the Colorado Springs Police Department documented a high incidence of spousal assault in the community. As a result, in May 1977, with help from the District Attorney and El Pomar Foundation, our agency was established as a referral service. This initial effort to provide information to victims of abuse has grown into an award-winning agency dedicated to the intervention in and prevention of family violence.
