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.”

The Chapel 10/5 project gave 1800 Man Hours (MH) of service in the month of May, 2017 with 250 volunteers. They put in a parking lot, landscaped and beautified our neighborhood, redid the basement floor and put up paneling in the shelter. Vincent Village is so appreciative of all the hard work and dedication of everyone that helped make this month such a huge success. We could not have done this without such amazing volunteers, helping up further our mission.

At the end of the week the kids will take Easter surprises to the folks living at Saint Anne's to brighten up the season! In addition to art, the kids will be going on several outings this week and staying active with outdoor activities. With an emphasis on good character and high integrity, Ms Cindy continuously provides quality services and unique opportunities for our kids to strengthen and thrive!
