Richmond Family Violence Prevention Network

Richmond Family Violence Prevention Network is a broad partnership of over 40 individuals, organizations, government, justice and health services working together to address the complex issue of family violence.

Family violence continues to affect the safety, health and well-being of too many families in Richmond. It takes many forms, including physical abuse, mental and emotional abuse, intimidation, sexual abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. Family violence occurs in relationships of kinship, intimacy, dependency or trust. 

Individuals can be abused regardless of their age, gender, cultural background, education, income or place of residence. The Richmond Family Violence Prevention Network works to make a difference by raising awareness, sharing resources, identifying service gaps, advocating for change and building a comprehensive community-based approach and response.
