The Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN) informs and strengthens domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts at the individual, community, and societal levels. DVRN member organizations are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work collaboratively to promote practices and strategies to improve our nation’s response to domestic violence and make safety and justice a priority.
February is national Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. FYSB’s Family Violence Prevention and Services Program is proud to support the many events hosted by our grantees and partners this year by presenting public awareness campaigns, webinars, social media events, and radio shows that highlight healthy relationships.
The FVPSA Program’s SSAPC twelve demonstration sites consist of domestic violence coalitions, local domestic violence programs, tribal organizations, behavioral health organizations, and a state social services agency. These grantees will work to alleviate trauma experienced by children and youth; support enhanced relationships between children/youth and parents; and improve systemic responses to children and youth exposed to domestic violence, and their abused parents.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to help recognize, prevent, and respond to a serious health crisis affecting a tremendous number of women — and men — across the country.
