TESSA of Colorado Springs has received a grant for funding a domestic violence prevention program designed for men and boys.

The $12,382 grant, awarded by the Verizon Foundation, will provide funding for TESSA's "Building Healthy Relationships" school outreach program, the organization said Thursday.

"Educating men and boys to be allies in stopping domestic violence is essential to ending intimate partner violence on a cultural scale," TESSA spokeswoman Michelle Schaunaman said in a statement.
