SPARCC is actively engaged in preventing and ending violence through addressing and changing social norms that support violence against women in Sarasota & DeSoto counties. SPARCC provides free prevention education presentations to local schools and community youth programs, as well as professional education about domestic and sexual violence to law enforcement, health care, social services and human resource professionals.

We truly believe that a violence-free society is attainable, and SPARCC is committed to breaking the cycle through awareness and education. For more information on SPARCC’s education and prevention programs, please click the buttons below:
