This online publication is for prevention advocates who are seeking strategies and inspiration to strengthen their community engagement work. We invite your ideas for creative ways that we can continue to deepen these conversations.
In 2012, Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training and Resource Center (TC-TAT) launched a national training and technical assistance pilot project: Grow Forward: Building Lasting Organizational Capacity for Organizations Ending Violence Against Women. A dedicated cohort of 23 OVW grantee organizations comprised of teams of advocates and leaders from across the country were selected to develop long-term, sustainable, organizational and leadership capacity-building strategies following an immersion institute that was held July 2013.
This publication strives to capture the rich dialogue, successes, lessons learned and strategic questions from Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training and Resource Center’s (TC-TAT) involvement in over 8 years of domestic violence (DV) prevention in faith and spiritual communities. In November 2010 many of those involved in these efforts convened for a Transfer of Knowledge (ToK) Gathering, which is also documented here.
This publication provides an overview of the implementation efforts carried out by the organizations that participated in TC-TAT's one-day PAR workshop and follow-on technical assistance facilitated by Alisa Del Tufo, Founder of Threshold Collaborative in November 2013.
