The ultimate goal of the KEDS Program is to help children and families heal from their exposure to domestic violence and to prevent future violence. Children who have been exposed to domestic violence often learn the destructive lesson that it is acceptable to use violence and emotional abuse in relationships. As a result, these children are more likely to use or to expect abuse and violence in their own relationships as adults… continuing the cycle. However, with early intervention and support, a brighter, violence-free future is possible.

For more information on the KEDS Program please call the NEWS office at 707-252-3687.
