 A Violence Prevention Center board member mentioned at one of our meetings that her board work was one of the most meaningful things she does. 

Would you like to join us in working to prevent violence and help those that have been subjected to it? 

We are seeking new board members to help with this critical mission. Please call the VPC office at (218) 387-1262.


The mission of the Violence Prevention Center is to serve individuals and families in Cook County affected by domestic and sexual violence and to act as a catalyst in building healthy relationships and developing a community where violence is not tolerated.
