Prevention Programs

The Prevention Program consists of community education and programs that work to prevent violence in our communities at all ages. 

Female Student


provides prevention programs at local colleges and to young adults with practical ways for reducing one’s risk of victimization. Presentation topics include sexual assault, stalking, date rape, or violence. 


Pee Dee Coalition provides services to domestic violence and sexual assault victims regardless of race, age, color, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or religion.


Pee Dee Coalition also provides community education and prevention programs and does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, age, color, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.
