What We Do
The goal of the JKFFC is to stop intimate partner violence (IPV) before it begins. We focus on and fund prevention, education, awareness & research (PEAR) initiatives with defined outcomes. Did you know that 1 in 4 women will be a victim of intimate partner violence during her lifetime? Are you aware that the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department averages 38,312 calls a year related to domestic violence. Did you know that more than 15 million children witness domestic violence in their homes each year? It's time to change these devastating statistics and you can help. As our foundation grows in the area of prevention, we are creating programs geared towards middle school, high school, and college-age students to help these youth and young adults understand what healthy and unhealthy relationships are; warning signs and resources to find help for those who need it.
Interesting Info
  • We support & promote high school intimate partner violence awareness clubs.
  • We establish partnerships with houses of faith & employers to educate them on the issues.
  • An average of 3 women are killed by a current or former intimate partner every day.
