Mobilizing communities in Massachusetts to prevent domestic and sexual violence

This grant will support implementation of the Close to Home community mobilization model in three communities in Massachusetts. Community mobilization is a promising approach to preventing intimate partner violence by engaging a full spectrum of community residents, including neighbors, civic organizations, leaders, friends, families and service providers. The deliverables will include: (1) documentation of the lessons learned in Boston's Dorchester community, a Close to Home site, including development of tools, manuals, training materials and technical assistance guides necessary for replication of the program; and (2) development of leadership training modules in the replication sites.
