Ending the Generational Cycle of Abuse

Most survivors identify their children as their primary concern. Additionally, trauma can impact children who have witnessed violence in various ways. One study suggests that children in violent homes may exhibit aggressive behaviors directed at the non-offending parent. The Julian Center strives to empower clients and end the generational cycle of violence. Data has found that children who witness domestic violence growing up are more likely to be in a domestic violence relationship as an adult. While children reside in our emergency shelter, we offer programs to help them feel safe, assist with ongoing learning about healthy relationships, and offer support and tutoring with school while residing in our emergency shelter.
