SASKATCHEWAN TOWARDS OFFERING PARTNERSHIP SOLUTIONS TO VIOLENCE

Log in

OUR BACK STORY

STOPS to Violence began in 1992 when a group of people came together to form the Provincial Partnership Committee on Family Violence.  The purpose of this initiative was to find a way for the government and community to work together in a new and different way to address issues of violence in the family through partnership processes. 

This partnership recognized that violence and abuse are the result of learned behavior and a hierarchical society that perpetuates the abuse of power to gain control. As a founding principle, the partnership was rooted in a consensus approach that embraced values of relationship building, respect, diversity, empowerment, flexibility, and cooperation. 

Partners were anyone with knowledge, interest, time, and energy to contribute to addressing the issue of violence.  In 1998, the Provincial Partnership Committee on Family Violence became Saskatchewan Towards Offering Partnership Solutions (STOPS) to Violence. 

Today, STOPS to Violence is a growing, vibrant network that holds the same values of relationship, respect, equity, diversity and cooperation central in all we do. 

 We are on treaty territories, the traditional lands of First Nations people and homeland to the M├ętis.  We are committed to moving forward in a respectful way in the spirit of reconciliation.
