The variety of trainings and networking opportunities has helped expand the knowledge base and capacity of advocates to meet the complex needs of survivors.”

  • Meet the Missouri Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence

    “We’re incredibly proud of our Shelter Rules project, a statewide effort that began in 2007 to work with domestic violence programs on reducing rules in shelter programs and incorporate a harm reduction model. The goal was to find a better way to welcome domestic violence victims — many of whom had every aspect of life controlled by their partners — into shelter where they could experience autonomy despite the constraints of a communal living environment.”

Among the intersectional issues we embrace, we see poverty and economic justice as a central issue for ensuring survivors have long-term safety. We are committed to supporting our member programs in our complex state.”

  • Meet the Virgin Islands Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Council

    Working in the domestic violence field anywhere is challenging, but working in the field from a U.S. Territory that is often forgotten (until vacation plans arise!) is difficult. Further, doing the work on small islands where families are familiar and truth is often mistaken for ‘dishonoring the family,’ makes the work twice as challenging.
