The Family Violence Prevention and Services Program in the Family and Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, Department of Health and Human Services is pleased to share two new online resources designed to help those serving families impacted by domestic violence to thoughtfully contribute to and learn from broader conversations related to evidence-informed practice.
Promising Futures: Best Practices for Serving Children, Youth, and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence is a new website developed by Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund and is designed to help domestic violence advocates enhance their programming for children and their abused parents. If you are just starting to think about how your program’s policies could better reflect an equal commitment to domestic violence survivors and children, or you have been delivering holistic services for all family members for years, this website has information and tools that can help you advance your practice.
The DV EVIDENCE PROJECT is designed to assist state coalitions, local domestic violence programs, researchers, and other allied individuals and organizations better respond to the growing emphasis on identifying and integrating evidence-based practice into their work. The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) has developed a DV Evidence online resource center which houses a comprehensive evidence review of domestic violence core services, programs and innovative practices. TA and training tools will be developed in parallel to enhance the domestic violence field’s capacity to thoughtfully and responsibly review and/or translate evidence-based practices and practice-based evidence into their work.
