COLUMBIA — True North recently received a two-year $300,000 grant from the Office for Violence Against Women (OVW) to help expand its Outreach Prevention and Education Program. The program promotes males to engage in prevention of sexual assault, stalking and domestic and dating violence.

A press release from True North said the grant will provide the opportunity to partner with Central Latino De Salud Education and Culture Center.

True North will work closely with Central Latino, developing and sharing educational materials and prevention strategies. Training opportunities will also become available for the Latino community in both Columbia and Boone County.

The grant will fund one part time and two full time outreach advocate positions at True North. The grant will also fund a part-time position as a Central Latino advocate.

One full time True North Outreach Advocate is currently focusing on education and prevention for young males. True North said the grant will now welcome a full time female Outreach Advocate Coordinator. True North will also hire two male outreach advocates, one full time and one part time.

True North said the part time hire will be a liaison with the Central Latino De Salud Education and Culture Center, working closely with the Central Latino part time male outreach advocate.
