Scaling Up: Trauma and Violence Informed Outreach with Women Affected by Violence

Status: Active

Project Lead: Vicky Bungay

This project examines the process and impact of implementing an evidence-informed, strengths-based, trauma and violence informed outreach program with self-identifying women at greatest risk of health and social inequities to mitigate the effects of multiple forms of violence in their lives. Through collaboration among community service leaders and staff, women with lived or living experience of gender-based violence, and researchers, this project aims to improve the capacity of organizations to build and sustain effective and trusting relationships with women in order to foster health, well-being, safety, and increased ability to independently navigate their support needs.
