Domestic violence has been at the forefront of the national conversation due to several high-profile cases. The Salvation Army has been addressing the issue for several years through a Partner Abuse Intervention Program. The program works to end domestic violence by empowering individuals in counseling to make non-abusive, non-controlling choices in their relationships.

Bob Agnoli, The Salvation Army’s Partner Abuse Intervention Supervisor recently attended a partner abuse forum. In addition to networking with probation officers and sharing best practices, the Army’s programs were recognized as cutting edge.

“Multiple probation officers and court personnel approached my table praising The Salvation Army’s program,”said Agnoli. “Many of our staff were specifically mentioned for their dedication to the men we work with. The Salvation Army has a reputation with the courts and officers for its dedication to changing the behavioral patterns of the men referred to our program.”
