Coordinated Community Responses to Domestic Violence in Six Communities

Beyond the Justice System

Abstract

This report presents the results of a project that examined coordinated community responses to domestic violence and focuses on communities that are attempting to incorporate non-justice system services and stakeholders into their responses. It details each community's efforts, including the history, features, and outcomes of the coordination. The report also discusses how the communities created change, the mechanisms used, and the opportunities for further efforts. The report concludes with a summary of important issues for communities to consider in coordinating a response to domestic violence that includes a broad range of organizations and stakeholders.
