Partnering with Congregations
Domestic violence creates a spiritual as well as a physical crisis. Faith groups are in a unique position to advocate for victims and their families and to be a catalyst for prevention. They can be an extension of God's presence for those trying to find meaning in their struggle.
DVIS offers program materials for delegations from congregations to learn more about the dynamics of domestic violence and what faith groups can do to address the problem in their own communities.
- the survivor's story
- characteristics of an abuser
- the impact on children who witness
- safety planning
- judicial and legal perspectives including mandatory reporting requirements
- theological overview
Each participating group develops a protocol to implement in their respective community.
