Partnerships/Collaborations within the community:

Day One Program – A collaboration with the City of Seattle and its partners; The Day One Program facilitates the process of providing immediate access to safety and services for domestic violence victims/survivors and their children – when they need services, where they need them and when they call, on “Day One.” The Day One Program does this through a secure and confidential Internet site that connects domestic violence programs allowing them to share “real time” available bed space and information about services.

Peace in the Homes Helpline – A collaboration with the City of Seattle; The Peace in the Home Helpline is a single-line access, toll-free phone number that links non- and limited-English speaking victims and survivors of domestic violence to a menu of multiple languages and directly connects callers to a community based agency of their choice that can serve their language and service needs. This program is the first to be implemented in the nation.

Children’s Domestic Violence Response Team – A collaboration with Sound Mental Health and DAWN

Hope and Power for Your Personal Finances” Series – A collaboration with the Jennifer Beach Foundation
