The mission of COPE, Inc. Batterers Intervention Program is to end domestic violence in our community through education, awareness and social change.

COPE’s philosophy operates under the premise that domestic violence is a criminal activity, is antisocial, learned behavior, and is therefore changeable. Violence, other than for self-defense, is not justified by the victim’s behavior and should not be condoned. Batterers are expected to be held accountable for all acts of abusive and intimidating behavior, as they are solely responsible for their actions. growing up with committed, involved and responsible fathers and to increase societal attention to the crisis of father absence. Through community forums, media campaigns and public advocacy these programs will foster discussion and action about the issues of fatherhood at the community, national, personal, and state level.
