All services are performed by students under instructor supervision.

For nearly 30 years, the MMC has offered shelter and supportive services to victims of domestic violence in Fresno County. Currently, the center operates the county’s only domestic violence shelters. The MMC works in partnership with CUT IT OUT, a program of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities across the United States. Milan Institute students will participate in a free educational workshop taught by CUT IT OUT to help them recognize warning signs and safely refer clients to local resources.
