BENEFITING: THE JOE TORRE SAFE AT HOME FOUNDATION
Kim Ward wrote -
Since 2002, the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation has been committed to ending the cycle of violence and to helping children who have been exposed to violence.
Through Margaret’s Place - our violence prevention and intervention model - we work within the school environment to promote awareness, to prevent violence, and to help those students who have been affected by it.
The program includes a dedicated room on-premises, individual & group counseling, school wide campaigns, a violence prevention curriculum, peer leadership programs, and targeted workshops – all serving to help these young people gain the knowledge, confidence, courage and skills that they need to effectively deal with the issue of violence in their lives.
Empowering the next generation in this way, we all move closer to a future that is free of abuse and its devastating effects - to a time when every child knows that she/he has the right to feel safe - at home, in school, and in the community.
