Vision:

The Ripple Effect envisions a community that is educated on the issues of domestic violence; trained and prepared to deal with it sensitively and appropriately; does not excuse or ignore it; and holds abusers accountable.

 

Objectives:

  1. To increase community awareness of the issue of and the appropriate responses to domestic violence.
  2. To advance community collaboration of domestic violence services to avoid duplication and enhance coordination.
  3. To provide specialized services to domestic violence agencies, city and county agencies, advocacy groups and businesses which provide direct services to those affected by domestic violence to enable these groups to better serve their clients.

 

 

 

 

“The Ripple Effect means peace to me, a sense of restoring of self and others. It means using the effect of domestic violence and its ripple effect of what it really does to families and community out to the public awareness to end the perceptions of violence.”
