Creative Way to Save and Expand Domestic Violence Services!

Sound Mental Health takes over Kent’s Safe Havens domestic violence visitation center http://www.pnwlocalnews.com/south_king/ken/news/125645778.html

This article provides an interesting look at how a domestic violence services center, after losing Federal funding, was able to achieve sustainability for their program by merging with a local private non-profit behavioral health services provider.

It also provides an overview of how the combination of these two organizations will not only sustain the center but increase the opportunities and availability of services from both organizations to address the complex needs of the children and families exposed to or recovering from domestic violence.

Overall, the new pairing of Sound Mental Health and Safe Havens offers a clear example of how organizations can sustain themselves beyond Federal funding, implement and share their programs, and fully integrate themselves into their communities to increase prevention and expand services.
