For Community Organizations and Service Providers
Family violence can happen to anyone, at any age, no matter what race or religion and no matter what level of education or economic background.
By forming alliances in our community with social service agencies to address the causes of this crime, we can move towards creating more peaceful and safer homes for families. Through fostering collaboration with social service providers, we can raise awareness about family violence and utilize their expertise to develop large-scale initiatives that will enhance programs and services currently provided.
As homes are becoming increasingly diverse, it is important to remember that victims and survivors represent many different cultures and family attitudes. This makes our challenge to provide necessary services that much greater.
Customized training programs and support are available for community service providers to learn how to recognize signs of abuse, respond appropriately to family violence and refer members to community resources. For more information and scheduling, please contact (614) 722-4830.
