How Can You Help?

You can become a trained volunteer advocate and answer calls on the community help line.

You can designate your home as a safe house so that people who do not feel safe in their own home will have a safe place to live for a temporary period of time within our community.

Call the Pleasant Point Police Department at 911 when a crime of domestic violence or sexual assault is occurring.

Speak out against domestic and sexual violence whenever the opportunity arises in your personal interactions with others.

Offer non-judgmental support to those who are affected by domestic and/or sexual violence.

Passamaquoddy Peaceful Relations Program is funded by grants from the U S Department of Health and Human Services, Family Violence Prevention Services and the U S Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women grant program.
