We work with concerted efforts on all fronts: governmental, law enforcement and at the grass-roots level involving smaller community based organizations will provide the greatest impact. Collaboration provides for greater long-term societal change which in turn ensures greater safety and success for our clients and their children.
The Domestic Violence Project works cooperatively with many agencies and task force groups on the local, city and state level to achieve the best protection with equal access to services under the law for all victims of domestic violence.
