Why Get Involved?

Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults.

We need your help to spread awareness about dating abuse and let everyone know they deserve a safe and healthy relationship.

Operation Care has several programs and classes devoted to promoting healthy relationships! LEARN MORE
