About Counterpoint

Our Mission

Counterpoint's mission is to provide holistic programming for men, women and children that transforms the causes and consequences of domestic violence. To achieve this mission, we offer educational programming to perpetrators of domestic violence, and we provide survivors with a comprehensive system of support.
