Domestic Violence Outreach Ministry that is directed by the Archdiocese of Chicago Domestic Violence Outreach.

Mission

The mission of the Archdiocese of Chicago Domestic Violence Outreach is threefold. The first is to raise awareness of domestic violence throughout the archdiocese. Second, is to promote the development and delivery of services, such as counseling and group support, to women, men and children victims of domestic violence, as well as to perpetrators, at local parishes and through archdiocesan institutions and agencies. Third, is to advocate for the prevention of domestic violence. Girls and boys, young women and young men must learn to recognize the elements of unhealthy and healthy relationships.  This is accomplished through education at home, in parishes, and in schools.
Our church is Sacred Heart, located in Palos Hills, IL.
