ABOUT US

Manalive™ Placer County is a non-profit men’s program committed to helping men, age 16 and older to stop the violence to themselves, their intimate partners, their families, and their communities. The Manalive™ program was originally designed in 1980 for the Marin Abused Women’s Services ( MAWS), a battered woman’s shelter in Marin County, California.

Today the program has expanded to the communities of San Francisco, Marin, Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, and Nevada counties. The curriculum is also taught in San Quentin State Prison, as well as the Marin, San Francisco, and Sacramento county jails.

Through Accountability and Advocacy, Manalive™ helps men understand the negative effects of being raised in a culture that promotes a system of male superiority and entitlement toward women. Manalive™ provides a safe environment for men to disclose, listen, and learn from each other about how to successfully change their negative behaviors and create more peace in their lives.

Men first become aware by learning to identify the four types of violence: Emotional, Verbal, Physical, and Sexual. The participants gain an understanding of the negative impacts of these behaviors in all aspects of their lives.

Anything that diminishes their accountability, such as Denial, Minimizing, Blame, or Collusion, is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

As the men progress, they learn to get in touch with their emotions and gain compassion and forgiveness for themselves and others. Participants learn communication and active listening skills designed to create deeper intimacy in all of their relationships

The program has worked for thousands of men over the last thirty-five years. Now it has an opportunity to work in Placer County. Take the chance to change.

They’re all forms of emotional violence that hurt you and the ones you love.
