Prevention Cost-Effectiveness

Making the Case for the Cost-Effectiveness of Domestic Violence Prevention
TC-TAT is deeply committed to demonstrating the impact of our prevention programs. We know that transformation is happening: we see it in the increased connectedness of community members, in the intergenerational collaboration happening through our organizing projects, in the changed school climates where students and adults alike are speaking out against bias in all its forms.

We seek new strategies to build our collective wisdom and to better communicate our results not only to funders (to help them see the types of changes we believe we need to measure and how), but also to our constituents.  TC-TAT has developed several tools and conducted trainings on how to articulate our work and make the case for prevention, including tools to demonstrate how investing resources in prevention produces meaningful outcomes towards ending violence against women.
