Abuse Intervention Services (AIS) offers Partner Abuse Intervention and Anger Management Programs.

Safe Passage believes an important element of our commitment to the safety of domestic violence victims and their children is our focus on abuse intervention and prevention. By working with individuals who have admitted to abusive behavior, we shift the focus from what victims can do to stay safe to what we all can do to promote healthy, respectful relationships. By engaging in Anger Management or the Partner Abuse Intervention Program, participants are given the chance to take accountability for their past actions and build toward a nonviolent, nonabusive future. For more information, contact AIS at 815-756-5054.
