February is Teen Dating Violence and Prevention Month.


Did you know that among high school students, 21% of females and 10% of males experienced physical and/or sexual dating violence?    (2013 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey)

And, 1 in 5 teens (ages 11 to 14) say their friends are victims of dating violence and nearly half who are in relationships know friends who are verbally abused.   (2008 Tween and Teen Dating Violence and Abuse Study)

The Purple Door provides prevention education and connects victims of intimate partner and sexual violence to much-needed services.
