MCBW works to make the public aware of the problem of battering and the availability of resources. By increasing partnerships with a variety of programs serving teens, high schools, colleges and universities, MCBW is able to engage women and girls at a younger age to make them aware of battering and the warning signs of an abusive relationship. MCBW recognizes that risk reduction is only part of the solution to ending domestic violence. MCBW is developing prevention initiatives with the goal of stopping domestic and dating violence before it happens. This translates into innovative approaches to address the social norms and support, promote, and encourage domestic violence, while supporting the promotion and development of healthy relationships.
