Hope House’s efforts to end the cycle of domestic violence continues as they raise awareness about teen dating, stalking, digital abuse, and what healthy relationships should be. Dating abuse is a pattern of coercive, intimidating, or manipulative behaviors used to exert power and control over a partner. Hope House is working with teens and young adults, encouraging them to have The Fearless Factor, Courageous Conversations. This campaign brings to light the difficult, and often dangerous path a victim experiences, resources for friends, family and neighbors, and the critical support they deserve received along the way.

Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime. Let’s break the cycle now. Start some of your own courageous conversations with the teens and young adults in your life. Reach out to a friend who may need support.
