Destructive behavior can wreak havoc in people’s lives, resulting in ruined relationships, job loss, physical endangerment, health problems, trouble with the law, and more. Twenty years ago, the Men’s Resource Center of Amherst founded the Moving Forward program. Since 1989, this state-certified batterer intervention program has improved the lives and wellbeing of thousands of individuals.
