We create an environment where children

can connect safely with their parents
Battered women must have a safe place to bring their children when it's time

to visit the child’s dad. We provide the only location in the city of Duluth for

safe exchanges and supervised visits and facilitate families’ transitions

toward long-term safety. Without intervention, women face high risk of

on-going violence, witnessed by the children. Learn more about the

Duluth Family Visitation Center.


We create change in men who batter
Women will be safe when men who batter change. We witness powerful changes in men through our 27-week nonviolence class. Learn more about our Men’s Nonviolence Classes.
