KEDS helps children and families in Napa County heal from their exposure to domestic violence and prevent future violence. KEDS is a program of NEWS Domestic Violence and Prevention Services.
Long Service Description
The ultimate goal of the KEDS Program is to help children and families heal from their exposure to domestic violence and to prevent future violence. Children who have been exposed to domestic violence often learn the destructive lesson that it is acceptable to use violence and emotional abuse in relationships. As a result, these children are more likely to use or to expect abuse and violence in their own relationships as adults… continuing the cycle. However, with early intervention and support, a brighter, violence-free future is possible.
