PAVE believes that communities can end violence, and that community members are the experts in designing and implementing programs that address dating abuse. Our mission is to promote individual and community responsibility, in which all community members are committed to preventing and reducing the impact of dating abuse.

PAVE engages community members to learn about dating abuse, organize community engagement efforts to raise awareness of and prevent dating abuse, and provide support to survivors of abuse. As we work with communities to effect community change, our staff offers training and technical assistance expertise. Community members are the agents of change.
