Purpose: The project consists of three interrelated parts connected to one another by a common thread: ensuring increased safety of female victims or alleged victims of spousal abuse. Directly related to increased safety for women is increased accountability of alleged or self-identified male abusers and the beginnings of positive change in men's attitude towards women. To achieve these objectives, the Northern John Howard Society of BC will provide accommodation with rehabilitative support programs for men who have just been charged with violent crimes against their spouses. The organization will also offer community education programs aimed at changing the current culture of male dominance and violence against women, to one in which men are involved in creating a culture of mutual respect and non-violence.
