Love Without Hurt Professionals

Love Without Hurt Professionals


Our organization brings a variety of programming to central Ohio teens. Based on national best practices, including research-based Safe Dates curriculum, we teach participants to recognize the warning signs and cycle of teen dating abuse. We also provide skills to build effective communication that promotes leadership, advocacy and peer support.

The professionals of Love Without Hurt help Ohio school administrators respond effectively to House Bill 19 - Tina's Law - which requires teen dating violence education for all Ohio 7th - 12th graders. We provide the essential programming to educate this important population.

Our professionals also provide comprehensive services that tackle the important related issues of bullying and low self-esteem. Our goal is to create a community of strong teen advocates who will produce social change and build a positive culture in their schools and communities.
