Give Way to Freedom has trained over 10,000 people on a wide range of topics and we have developed a robust menu of options. Our team’s background and experience enable us to work with both community and professional audiences, and we tailor each training to meet the group’s individual needs as well as make the training geographically appropriate.

Together we have experience in the victim services, mental health, legal, law enforcement, policy, capacity building and task forces. Give Way to Freedom has received federal, state, county, and private donation monies to provide these trainings.
