Center for Nonviolence Program

Center for NonViolence on site doing a weekly program for youth. Thanks to Lutheran Foundation

CNV was the first program in Indiana for perpetrators of domestic abuse and one of the first such programs in the country. It was started in the mid-1970’s by a group of five men, “inspired by the dedicated work of women at the local shelter for abused women, and an understanding among the founders of the need to address the behavior of batterers with accountability and compassion.”
