At Heartly House, we want to engage the community as much as possible to raise awareness of sexual, dating, and domestic violence, as well as human trafficking. We believe that education is the first step towards prevention of violence and makes our community healthier and safer. To that end, we are now offering training twice a month that is free and open to the public. Register today!
