The VOICE (Violence Can End) Campus program serves students by providing counseling as well as prevention and education on intimate partner violence, sexual assault and stalking. The safety and well-being of every student, faculty and staff of the College is a priority at JCHS. We partner with law enforcement and advocates in our community to increase awareness, education, training and services for victims.
Victims of sexual assault, physical assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and technology abuse may feel a variety of conflicting emotions including, but not limited to: numbness, anger, fear and depression. Abuse affects all areas of a person's life and the lives of the victim's loved ones. Help is available. For more information, please contact the VOICE Program Coordinator at (540) 985-9711.
