A Special Anger Management Program for our community @ Triangle Family Services
Oct 30 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. A Special Anger Management Program for our community: Thursday, October 30, 2014 @ 3:00P-4:30P

There is a place where  domestic violence abusers  get help. For 27 years Triangle Family Services (TFS) has been quietly providing a batterer intervention program to offenders of domestic violence here in Wake County. Triangle Family Services addresses the problem of domestic violence through the Developing Opportunities for a Safe Environment (DOSE) program.  DOSE is one of the largest and oldest domestic violence offender education programs in North Carolina. Annually at least 400 men and women go through the DOSE program. Since inception that means over 8,000 abusers received education; training; tools to break the cycle of violence.  Nationally 50% of abusers complete the program; TFS’ completion rate is 65%. This equates to 5,200 of our neighbors; family members and friends learning new skills that positively impact families and reduce violence in our community.
