Prevent & Empower:

WHW’s Prevent & Empower Program trains professionals on gender-based violence and effective response to ensure that community members will identify abuse and know how to support and empower survivors. Prevent & Empower also educates youth on prevention of dating and sexual violence through up to 10 sessions of evidence-based curriculum in over 20 schools. Our children, youth, and families deserve the freedom of never having to experience trauma in the first place. That is why WHW is the leader in prevention services in Hamilton and Butler Counties.


WHW provided over 38,000 services to almost 13,000 survivors in 2016, and that number is growing. Please join the #WHWempower movement to prevent gender based violence and empower ALL survivors!
