Preventing Relationship Violence on Campus

Edmonds Community College Healthy Relationships Team (HEART) believes that everyone deserves love, friendship, and family without fear, control, or violence. That is why we provide education and support services to our campus community. Our office is located in the Wellness Center in Lynnwood Hall, Room 236.

HEART Programs

Advocacy

It is normal to feel confused or overwhelmed when someone has mistreated you. HEART Advocates can help you understand your options and resources, and they can accompany you to appointments. Drop in the Wellness Center on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. Or call 425.640.1783 to make an appointment on a day or time that works best for you.
