Nevada: Heart & Shield

Brief Site Description: 
Heart & Shield: A program to end family violence targets youth and parents with weekly training/activities about healthy relationship development. The program will recruit and train community agencies, law enforcement, train on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and create a Coordinated Community Response (CCR). As an FYI, Nevada ranked No. 1 in the nation in the rate of women killed by men in single victim/single offender homicides in 2012.
About multiple sites: 
Two sites include Elko and Churchill counties. Needs assessments in Elko and Churchill indicate violence prevention as a top priority Extension program.
