The purpose of the Center is to facilitate a coordinated community response to interpersonal violence that improves outcomes and enables victims to access all of the services they need from a single location. This requires robust partnerships with government and community-based agencies. We have 17 community partners. Co-location means our combined efforts reduce the potential that individuals and families in crisis will miss vital resources. It also reduces the number of times that they must retell their story to minimize further trauma. Ultimately, the Center fosters a heightened community vigilance that comes from partners looking for innovations through the same lens; rapid learning that comes from continuous feedback; and an immediacy of action from a unified and simultaneous response.
