Our business philopshy is reflected in our workplace services. We believe by empowering employers through education, businesses can make a real difference in the lives of their employees dealing with workplace violence. Join the many other employers in Columbia and Montour counties who have utilized our services to educate their staff on issues of domestic violence, sexual harassment, workplace bullying and social media violence.

As one Domestic Violence Survivor said, "I think even a poster in the lunch room would make me know I wasn't going to be completely off the wall. If I knew somebody cared enough to hang a poster like that, I would have felt a little better about saying something in my present job."
