February is National Teen Dating Awareness Month. Lip Gloss for Love is committed to providing dating education to teens throughout the year. We understand that dating violence for teens is increasing and tend to be unreported.
Lip Gloss for Love has provided Healthy Relationship education to over 10,000 teens and youth in the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex over the past 6 years. Our stats show that teens are often uneducated about the severity of dating violence and unhealthy relationships.
Our teens are directly engaged in practical learning and how to recognize and report dating violence and remain safe. Our program participants can become Teen Dating Violence Advocates in their schools, community, church and in their family.
Lip Gloss for Love partners with schools, youth and teen programs, churches, and other non-profit organizations to ensure that teens are educated on how to stay safe in relationships.
Lip Gloss for Love will provide parenting and pregnancy support services to parents with unborn and children up to age 3. All families are offered fun and interactive parenting lessons and spiritual services (optional). Our parenting and pregnancy services are a spectacular part of our outreach program.

For Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, we partnered with the Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center (darcc) and Planned Parenthood to teach teens the signs of an unhealthy relationship.
In April, we hosted a workshop for teen girls, designed to promote self-esteem and a positive body image.
For Mental Health Awareness Month, LipGloss for Love visited the Rosie Sorrells School of Education and Social Services at Townview for their 1st Annual Mental Health Awareness Symposium.
In August, we held our 3rd annual walk to raise awareness for domestic violence. Then afterwards, we co-hosted a back to school fair with Cherubim Lodge #237.
In October, we held our 4th annual benefits dinner. We heard from survivors, experts and advocates about the very real impact domestic violence has on all our lives.
Lip Gloss for Love has a mission to Educate, Raise Awareness, and Prevent Domestic Violence, while empowering individuals and families to address it within their lives, community, and society.
