  • Conference/Workshop/Discussions: 2:00PM – 4:00PM

  • Health Fair: 4:00PM – 5:00PM


The purpose of this event is to raise awareness, prevent and educate the community about the causes and effects of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and what can be done to alleviate this social illness.



  • The Haitian American Nurses Association (H.A.N.A.) 

  • The Haitian Catholic Community of Lawrenceville


October is Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness Month. IWOH continues to work in partnership with HANA to educate the community and impact their lives in many different ways.  By doing these educational events, our mutual goal is to generate a healthy community, both mentally and physically. The Haitian Community of St. Lawrence also joins us in those efforts to better serve the community at large. My sincere hope is that many people will show up and take advantage of the services all three organizations will provide onsite. That’s one of the ways we strive to make a difference.
