Governor's Initiative

In 2007 FCADV received funding dedicated to initiating statewide prevention initiatives among FCADV's forty-two member programs from Governor Charlie Crist's Office and the Florida Department of Children and Families. FCADV's Primary Prevention Initiatives work toward preventing first time victimization and perpetration of intimate partner violence by working with communities to develop activities that promote healthy relationships at all levels of society. Florida's 42 certified domestic violence centers are currently engaged in implementing portions of their primary prevention plans which include the following five items:

  1. Community Partnerships with non-traditional partners
  2. Prevention activities with youth
  3. Building Organizational Capacity
  4. Evaluation of prevention programming
  5. Sustainability

FCADV is committed to providing comprehensive training and technical assistance to support centers in accomplishing their prevention goals.
