Abuser Intervention Program / PAIP

The SSFS Partner Abuse Intervention Program serves adult men and women who have used violence and abuse with an adult intimate partner. Our program emphasizes safety for victims and children, taking accountability for abusive choices, and reducing and preventing continued domestic violence through education and awareness.

Our program is a 30-week psycho-educational program using a state-approved curriculum designed to help participants to recognize and identify abusive behaviors, use non-violent conflict resolution; promote assertive, non-aggressive communication, achieve and maintain healthy and non-abusive parenting skills, and bring awareness of domestic violence.

PAIP services are accessed by individual assessment for eligibility. Fees are assessed for PAIP services. For more information or to request an assessment appointment, please contact Ruben Gonzalez at 708-794-2140, x301 or RubenG@ssfs1.org
