Funds from the Verizon Foundation to support domestic violence prevention efforts that engage youth and men across the state.

Oct. 22, 2013, RALEIGH, N.C. /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon announces more than $100,000 in grants to domestic violence prevention efforts across North Carolina. The funds will support programs that educate youth and men about healthy relationships and domestic violence with a goal of stopping the cycle of abuse.

Crisp vice chancellor of student affairs at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

"Verizon believes individuals can reverse the negative trends in family violence and sexual assault," said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon's Carolinas/ Tennessee region. "This investment in prevention initiatives is a symbol of our ongoing commitment to ending the cycle of violence in our communities."
