The Retreat in East Hampton provides resources for people who have experienced abuse in their relationships. The Retreat’s mission is to provide safety, shelter, and support for victims of domestic abuse, and to break the cycle of family violence. There are many ways to get involved with the Retreat and help people in your community, such as the Teen Leadership Project.

The mission of the TLP is to “prevent abuse and promote respect” in all relationships, as well as to help The Retreat expand its focus to include the prevention not just of domestic violence, but all types of relationship abuse. These relationships include bullying and harassment, sexual assault, and teen dating violence. Such relationships are more common than you think.

The Project is an opportunity for teens from schools such as Pierson, Ross, and East Hampton High School to work together while learning about violence prevention and promoting awareness and safety in the community. Doing outreach for The Retreat is very important since clients of The Retreat can’t do it for themselves. Often, clients do not want to do outreach because they don’t want their abusive partners to find out, which could put them in more danger.

Students can earn community service credits for participating in this program. The Retreat runs two TLP programs: one in the fall, and one in the winter. It usually takes place from 5:30 to 7, once a week, at the office on Goodfriend Drive in East Hampton. Over the eight week course, students earn a minimum of 16 hours of community service in addition to hours received for an independent service project. (Completed in conjunction with the program.) The next program should be starting in January, so keep a lookout for information if you are interested!
