ABOUT US

​MISSION AND HISTORY

Alternatives to Violence Center is a grass roots organization founded in 1981.  Formed by a working board of trustees and one full-time staff, the agency was originally called Highland County Domestic Violence Task Force. After prompting from Clinton County Commissioners, the agency soon expanded to include Clinton County.  In an effort to ensure Clinton County was represented, as well as the services and communities served, the agency re-branded itself and began working as Alternatives to Violence Center in 2008.

 

Alternatives to Violence Center's mission is to provide alternatives to violence and solutions to survivors and their families.  The agency accomplishes this mission by providing 24-hour crisis intervention to any individual experiencing violence, abuse, stalking or neglect.  

Alternatives to Violence Center is a current member of Ohio Domestic Violence Network, Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, Ohio Network of Child Advocacy Centers, and End Slavery Cincinnati.  Membership ensures the agency is adhering to best practices as outlined by these groups.
