Early Intervention/Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Prevention – The goal of this effort is to strengthen overall capacity to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault in Ketchikan, through partnership planning, implementation and evaluation. Working closely with the Ketchikan Wellness Coalition and a task force dedicated to respectful relationships, this grant is working to strengthen systems that address domestic violence. By promoting dialogue among stakeholders and policy makers in the community, and following the Strategic Prevention Framework model for prevention program planning, Akeela Gateway is developing a plan that over time will result in significant reduction in the numbers of individuals and families harmed by domestic violence.
