Timed to arrive with the school year, the free app, One Love Lite Version No. 2, is another part of the One Love Foundation's Be 1 for Change campaign to combat relationship violence in the United States.
The goal of Be 1 for Change is to educate, create awareness, and provide resources for people 16 to 24 years old.
The One Love app, launched in September 2012, is a revolutionary tool that allows young victims of relationship violence to assess the threat and seek help. Though geared toward the victim, family and friends also may use the One Love app with victims to help them understand how dangerous it is to remain in a relationship and guide them to appropriate resources.
One Love Lite Version No. 2 incorporates a live chat function that provides 24-hour support by phone through a partnership with LoveisRespect.org. Users also can now re-access the app at any time by entering a pin number-the original app erased itself after first-time use.
