A Bucks County nonprofit has partnered with a state crime prevention organization to teach local children important safety practices.
The Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA), located at 2370 York Road, Ste B1 in Jamison, recently worked with the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency on “Project Safe and Smart”, an educational program that brings safety lessons to elementary school children throughout the area.
“Using puppets, trained NOVA educators teach key steps for body safety and remind children about the trusted adults they can go to if they need help or feel unsafe,” the nonprofit said on social media.
Found in 1974 as Women Organized Against Rape (WOAR), the organization has worked with victims of rape and violence in the Bucks County area for almost five decades.
