praac's strategic direction

What does praac do

1.  Collaborative:  work together toward an intersection of common goals and shared vision, by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus in a climate of trust and respect.

2. Inclusive:  acknowledge and nurture the ever changing diversity of the community in such a way that each person may feel included, addressed and equally valued by identifying and minimizing barriers to participation.

3. Consultative:  work together with community partners and experts, to provide best practices including a multi-level support network approach.

4. Grounded in a rural perspective: options must be rooted in the local knowledge and led by community members to be effective strategies, mindful of the complexities of the issues relating to relationship abuse.

5. Holistic:  approaches and practices will address the social, economic, cultural and ecological dimension of personal and community well-being in responding to and preventing relationship abuse.

​6. Accountable: committing to excellence in shared responsibilities; empowering individuals to advocate for prevention and personal/community responses to address relationship abuse.
