Domestic Violence Services

SPARC’s trauma informed Domestic Violence Intervention Program provides evidenced based counseling sessions to men and women who have committed abuse. Domestic violence is a deadly issue in our community. Offender services are a crucial part of domestic violence prevention.

Keeping Families Together

With Family Centered Treatment and Family Centered Treatment Recovery (when there is substance misuse by a parent) SPARC is directly improving outcomes for current families, and also for generations to come as children see a positive shift in their family and carry that into their future families.

Community Wellness + Safety

As one of Buncombe County’s Safety Initiative Partners, SPARC is a founding member of a Violence Interrupters Street Team and works directly in local neighborhoods with community members most impacted by and at risk of being a victim of gun violence. SPARC also partners with Manna Foodbank to provide food and resources to our neighbors in underserved neighborhoods.

Family Visitation and Parent Coaching

SPARC helps keep children out of Foster Care and supports family reunification through our Family Visitation and Parent Coaching program. We have a team of professional staff to observe court-ordered visits between parents and children involved with the Department of Social Services.
