Mission Statement

IMPACT Personal Safety is a nonprofit organization that empowers children and adults by teaching them to prevent and defend themselves against verbal, physical, and sexual violence.


Description

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, IMPACT reaches children, teens, adults and the elderly in Northern and Central New Mexico. Conceptual seminars teach the origins of violence and how to assess risk and set boundaries for healthy relationships. Experiential classes teach hands-on interpersonal skills and strategies to prevent and stop assault. IMPACT reaches individuals and communities through partnerships with schools and other nonprofits, community groups and Pueblos, as well as classes for the public.

By reducing the fear and impact of violence, we help to create a community where people live powerfully, experience freedom, and pursue joy. We believe it is possible to tackle the causes and effects of violence by partnering within the community to:

Raise Personal Expectations:
Increasing self-worth, enhancing relationships, and promoting trauma recovery.

Promote Social Justice:
Teaching students to recognize and confront oppression.

Empower Communication:
Training individuals to advocate for themselves and others.

Improve Awareness:
Providing skills to recognize and avoid conflict and violence.

Teach Physical Skills:
Teaching self-defense strategies to address boundary violation and prevent assault.
