Young Men's/Women's Safety and Healthy Living Class (Ages 15-21)
We will be offering this program for individuals with disabilities in the effort to help keep them safe and living a fulfilled life. It is well documented that individuals with intellectual disabilities continue to be of high incidence for sexual abuse. We are working to help make these individuals safer in our local community. This program is designed for individuals between the ages of 15-21. These classes will be gender specific. Each enrolled participant is able to bring one trusted adult to the class if they so wish.
6 Participants per class
Why teach medically accurate sexual health information? -Rocky Bonsal, LCSW‐R Senior Social Worker
- Research consistently shows that those with more information are less likely to be victims of abuse and have fewer unplanned pregnancies.
- Higher abuse rates among those with disabilities.
- Abstinence‐only models have proven ineffective over time.
- When true information is absent, myth and rumor take its place
