Integrating Prevention Strategies Into Organizations That Address Intimate Partner Violence

Media Type: 

These resources have been created, refined and collected as a result of the DELTA Prep Project supported through RWJ and the CDC Foundations. DELTA PREP’s purpose was to prepare state-level domestic violence coalitions to address primary prevention of IPV by enhancing existing efforts and building new efforts within their states: building organizational capacity of coalitions to serve as catalysts for IPV primary prevention efforts in their states and communities and advancing national efforts for IPV primary prevention through strategic prevention partnerships and dissemination of project resources.

This collection represents learnings, tools used and tools developed during the DELTA Prep Project. The 19 state domestic violence coalitions that participated spent three years focusing their efforts on building organizational, state and community capacity for the primary prevention of intimate partner violence (IPV) and, as a result, are now positioned to serve as catalysts for effective primary prevention programs, policies and practices in their states.

Impact: Created by and with input from practitioners, evaluation of the project measured an increase in capacity of the 19 participating coalitions. Measurements included included increased organizational capacity to do prevention in the following areas: structures and processes, leadership development, staffing, member program development, and partnership development and resource development. Sample assessment and evaluation tools can be found in the online toolkit.

An orientation to the public health approach for the prevention of intimate partner violence and organizational development are useful to implementing the change process that this toolkit offers guidance for. Dedicated staffing will increase the success of a capacity building process.
