ONE LOVE AWARDED JEWISH TEEN FOUNDATION GRANT IN SUPPORT OF BAY AREA HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP EDUCATION
New York, NY (June 14, 2021) — On June 1st, the Jewish Teen Foundation (JTF), a subsidiary of the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund, awarded a $5,180 grant to the One Love Foundation in support of the organization’s Bay Area Healthy Relationship Education initiatives through May 2022.
One Love has been leading prevention education workshops with students in the Bay Area since 2015 and opened a regional office in San Francisco in 2017. One Love’s Bay Area team was the first of our regional teams to focus more time on high school and public-school engagement, an experiment that has become central to One Love’s national growth strategy.
To date, One Love has educated more than 120,000 people locally through in-person workshops conducted in partnership with more than 350 organizations. Funding from this JTF grant will help sustain access for One Love’s relationship health education programs to young people in the Bay Area in the coming year.
“One Love is honored to work alongside the Jewish Teen Foundation and the young people who are committed to being part of something bigger by making meaningful contributions to their communities,” said Michèle Heffron, Executive Director of the Pacific Northwest Region. “One Love’s mission to end relationship abuse and domestic violence by educating all young people about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors depends on the innovative spirit and support of organizations like JTF.”

ABOUT ONE LOVE
The One Love Foundation is dedicated to improving the relationship health of future generations. The non-profit organization has educated nearly 1.5 million young people through educational workshops, both in-person and online, by teaching them the signs of unhealthy and healthy relationship behaviors. One Love was founded in honor of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old college student whose life was tragically cut short when she was killed by her ex-boyfriend. Her family learned during the trial that her death could have been prevented had they recognized the signs of an abusive relationship. For more information, visit joinonelove.org
