The Violence Prevention Center has been part of the Cook County community for over 30 years. The nonprofit has operated under different names but has had the same mission for all those years—to help those affected by domestic or sexual violence.

Jodi Yuhasey has been the director of the Violence Prevention Centersince 1993. She will be retiring soon, continuing to serve during a transition period for the new director, Lindsey Gau.

Lindsey has been the Violence Prevention Center program advocate for more than two years and she has been named as the new VPC director. Lindsey comes to the VPC with a solid background at a Twin Cities nonprofit, as a counselor working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence. 

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence sat down with Jodi and Lindsey to talk a bit about the history of the Violence Prevention Center and what’s ahead.

If you need information on the Violence Prevention Center or its services, call 218-387-1237, email [email protected] or stop by the VPC office in the NorShor Building on First Avenue in Grand Marais.
