Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to provide youth and adults with education, training and support in anger management and conflict resolution in order to prevent crime, abuse and violence both within and outside of the criminal justice system.
Violence is a public health epidemic in our country and carries with it significant health and psychosocial consequences. Domestic violence affects individuals from all backgrounds, genders and socioeconomic statuses. For many, however, domestic violence intersects with poverty, homelessness and job instability that significantly limits victim’s abilities to escape abuse. Domestic violence is more likely to turn deadly with a gun in the home. An abusive partner’s access to a firearm increases the risk of homicide eight-fold for women in physically abusive relationships. Youth are particularly vulnerable to violence. More than 40 percent of children in the U.S. are exposed to some form of intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against another person or group.
NewView Institute was formed in December, 2015 as a 501 c3 nonprofit corporation to help combat these problems for youth and adults within and outside of the criminal justice system with trainings, chaplaincy services, workshops and seminars. NewView Institute programs are an effort to interrupt the cycle of violence. Our programs are built on years of clinical experience, research and community partnerships that address assault, domestic violence and bullying. Through the practice of trauma-informed care, in which we recognize that traumatic experiences affect how people respond to our outreach and services, we hope to become a national model for community-led violence prevention.
