Sometime in your life, you or someone you know will be directly impacted by domestic violence, sexual violence, human trafficking or crime. Violence and abuse knows no boundaries; it’s prevalent in all neighborhoods across the Twin Cities and has real, lasting negative impacts on people and communities. Experiencing or witnessing trauma is harmful for adults’ and kids’ health, development and social interactions. It’s critical that we all take action to end relationship abuse.

Before real change can happen, we all need to understand the basics of relationship abuse, including what to look for and how to support someone who reaches out for help. Cornerstone is a resource for you, your community and your organizations. We are experts with an almost 40 year history of serving families in suburban Hennepin County. Learn from us.
