Our prevention team's Youth Action Team will be holding an event on Thursday May 15h, starting at 7pm at Barnstormers Theater to promote healthy relationships, safe dating, and violence reduction. Hope to see you all there!
WCST, Mid Rogue Independent Physician Association Family of Companies (MRIPA), and First Call Resolution are partnering in a phone appeal, the 1000 Men Campaign, to support WCST and our fundraising efforts. This is designed to increase awareness and support of WCST and to encourage others to speak out about the devastating and life-threatening effects of domestic violence on women, children, families and our community. Our outreach would not be possible without your financial and in-kind support. This year, MRIPA will match the first $30,000 donated, doubling the impact of your gift!
WCST was nominated for a Peacemaker Award by a task force formed by the Unity Church of Grants Pass, to promote peace and nonviolence in conjunction with the 17th Annual Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence. WCST was nominated because of "many intervention services, participation in community teams and committees, maintaining a safe house for the survivors of violence and supporting them during their life changes, and implementing primary violence prevention programs to reduce the incidence of violent acts before they occur."
Thanks to the Unity Church of Grants Pass and those who nominated WCST :) Check out the beautiful certificate we were presented with below:
